OTTAWA, June 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Adam Taylor, a director at ENsight Canada's international trade practice, is available this week to comment on the US House of Representatives discussions around the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.
ENsight says US lawmaker discussion on the "Deal by the Dozen" will send economic ripples across the 12 countries involved in the Trans Pacific Partnership and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
"TPP is about setting the global rules for 21st century trade. For Canada, advancing the interests of manufacturers and businesses abroad and providing small and large Canadian companies preferred access to new customers throughout the large, dynamic and high-growth Asia-Pacific rim are key offensive objectives.
"Should the Obama administration fail to secure fast-track authority from Congress, its trade agenda will be severely crippled. Countries like Canada are watching events in the U.S. closely to determine their own next steps on negotiations.
"The Conservative government has made its trade agenda a core feature of its economic credentials. Showing progress on the Asia front would be important because it would further cement a solid plank in the Conservative offering to voters heading into the next Canadian general election."
Adam Taylor is director at ENsight Canada's international trade practice. He played a leading role in Canada's official entry into the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations.
