I wrote to Maria Cantwell regarding the TPP issue. Here is her response Dear Mr. Norton, Thank you for contacting me regarding international trade and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue. On November 14, 2009, President Barack Obama announced the United States' intention to enter a Trans-Pacific Partnership with eight other Pacific Coast countries. This Free Trade Agreement would promote trade relations with Australia, Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam. In October 2012, Mexico and Canada joined the Free Trade partnership. On April 12, 2013, the United States Trade Representative announced the United States had completed its consultations with Japan and the Administration notified Congress of its intention to invite Japan into the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which launched a 90-day consultation period. In July 2013, Japan joined the Free Trade partnership. Washington State has enjoyed substantial economic benefits from trade . ...
The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a proposed expansion of the 2005 Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPSEP or P4), a trade agreement[7] among Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore.

New Zealand doctors, nurses, and medical students protest against the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Simon Terry, Executive Director, Sustainability Council The Trans-Pacific Partnership covers a lot of non-trade matters, so why is there a reluctance to discuss the overall balance of costs and benefits? The Trans-Pacific Partnership is very different from past trade deals and the differences matter. It bundles together standard gains from trade with a wide range of non-trade matters that will set privileges for foreign investors and impose serious costs. More than any past trade deal, it matters what the overall balance of benefits and costs is. When sizing up the gains, the Government has relied on estimates from a team of United States economists who most recently published with the Peterson Institute. Based on their work, Trade Minister Tim Groser told Parliament the TPP would result in US$4.1 billion of gains for New Zealand in the year 2025 (about NZ$5 billion). But a detailed review of the potential gains led by economist Geoff Bertram finds that there is much less in prospect. The Sustainability C ...
"Mass protests against the Trans-Pacific Partnership in New Zealand. h..."
Unbeknownst to the wider world, two enormous trade deals have been in the works for the past several years. Shrouded in secrecy, talks on these deals, which will cover over half of world trade in goods and services and which include such sensitive topics as Intellectual Property rights, flew under just about everyone’s radar. That is until WikiLeaks revealed part of the first deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, late last year. Their example was quickly followed by three German MEPs (Ska Keller, Rebecca Harms and Sven Giegold) who leaked the EU’s position paper on the second deal, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership last month. Keeping these two agreements apart, not to mention reconciling them with the rest of the world trade regime, can be difficult. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is being negotiated between the United States, the European Union and its member states, and is usually abbreviated ‘TTIP’, although it’s sometimes also called ‘TAFTA’ (for Tran ...

US-led Pacific trade pact under discussion in Singapore AFP | Sat, Feb 22, 2014 SINGAPORE - Asia Pacific trade ministers began a fresh round of talks in Singapore on Saturday for a huge US-led Pacific Free Trade area, hoping to conclude a deal this year after missing a deadline in 2013. The four-day meeting of ministers from 12 countries covered by the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) comes after their chief negotiators completed five days of talks also held in the city-state. Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said ahead of the meeting that negotiators were "very close" to completing a pact this year, but some ministers involved in negotiating the agreement think it could take longer. Trade ministers from Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the US and Vietnam reconvened in Singapore after ending talks in December with several issues still unresolved. The 12 countries, which make up 40 per cent of the global economy, have been divided on a ...

Why should we be concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership? If these negotiations succeed they will create a mega-treaty across nine countries that will put a straightjacket around what policies and laws our governments can adopt for the next century. Which countries are involved in these negotiations? As of November 2010 there are nine: in addition to the US and New Zealand, there are Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. When do the negotiations begin? There have already been four rounds of negotiations. The last round was in Auckland on the week of 6 December 2010 – at the Sky City casino. What could the TPPA affect? Everything from foreign ownership of land and resources, including mining licenses, media laws and support for local NZ content, Treaty settlements, control of financial speculation, the price of medicines, to compulsory labelling of food, plain packaging of cigarettes, privatisation contracts for water, prison, schools and hospitals under public private p ...
"Since NAFTA was passed twenty years ago, approximately one million US jobs have been lost and Workers Rights and regulations have decreased; manufacturing labor was migrated to Mexico among other countries based upon lower wage expenses and poor working conditions. That's just a taste of what NAFTA has done to our economy." “Now we face the largest ‘trade’ agreement in human history, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that is referred to as ‘NAFTA on steroids’, involving the US, Canada, Mexico, Brunei, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Australia, Chile, Malaysia, & Vietnam giving them control of 40% of the World's GDP.

Dear Fight for the Future member, This is important -- and an awesome idea. Please see below an important message about the Trans-Pacific Partnership from our allies at OpenMedia. Sincerely, -Holmes Wilson Fight for the Future In a matter of weeks over 125,000 citizens from around the world have spoken out against the TPP’s Internet censorship plan. We now know that this remarkable global effort has gotten us the attention of decision-makers negotiating the TPP. Heads of government from Malaysia, New Zealand, and others are now calling for greater transparency and Public Engagement in the TPP negotiations. [1][2][3] This is amazing, and would have never happened without your support. Now that we have their attention, it’s time to let them know what we want. We need to create a citizen-led vision for copyright rules that serve creativity, innovation, and sharing, not control by Big Media. Be part of our crowdsourced visioning process today. Earlier this year, we asked the Internet community what we sho ...
Monsanto’s about to celebrate their biggest coup ever, but we’ve got until the weekend to stop them. Sign here: The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a huge, ultra-secret deal among twelve major countries that would give corporations unprecedented power -- allowing them to use new global tribunals to sue our governments for passing laws that protect us, but reduce their profits! This could apply to everything from labeling GMO foods to protecting internet freedom. Wikileaks has broken the story and opposition is building fast, but the countries are rushing to seal the deal in 48 hours. This is insane, but we have a chance to stop it -- 3 countries are wobbling, and if they pull back now the whole deal could crumble. If we deluge leaders in Chile, New Zealand and Australia with a global call to stand strong, we can stop this corporate takeover before Monsanto uncorks the champagne. Sign up now and share this with everyone!

(taken from a Flush the TPP email, if this is not allowed I will remove it) This week, Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiators have been meeting in Salt Lake City to hash out the final details of the TPP before the end of the year. They have been 'welcomed' with daily creative protests. We understand that the protests are giving negotiators from other countries the courage to stand up to the US. However, word leaked out yesterday that the US negotiators are using outrageous bullying tactics to force other countries to accept exorbitant patent protections that will keep the cost of healthcare and medical treatments high and out of our reach. This hurts everyone! The bullying is being led by Stan McCoy of the Office of the US Trade Representative. As a former employee of Covington and Burling, the world's largest defender of Pharma's profits, McCoy is accustomed to doing whatever it takes to protect his clients profits, even at the expense of human suffering and lives. The US has 20 staffers at the nego ...
Bill English and Learning English Is Fun [Word Of The Day] Bill English: Trade deal will need US push to get across line Reaching an agreement on a Pacific trade pact is unlikely at this week's APEC summit, the deputy Prime Minister says, after President Barack Obama revealed he will be absent due to the US government shutdown. Mr Obama had intended to thrash out issues with leaders of the 11 other Trans-Pacific Partnership member countries, including New Zealand, on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific regional summit in Bali. Instead he ended up shelving the trip to focus on resolving the standoff over funding the US government. A move which Deputy Prime Minister Bill English says means everyone else has to work a bit harder. "But I think it's a tribute to New Zealand as an original sponsor of the TPP and the current organiser of the negotiations, and they're very complex negotiations, that Prime Minister John Key now has the job of chairing the session," he told TV ONE's Breakfast. "I'm absolutely sure he' ...

NEW ASIAN TRADE ZONE The division between East and West actually accelerated when the extremely ill-advised decision for Iran sanctions was made by an increasingly desperate United States Govt and its handler on the Southern Med. The division continues, matures, and develops with each passing month. It has become a story, as the Eurasia trade zone concept has been born. It has a long way to go, but Asia however has made great strides lately in unifying commerce. The climax event of the Asian trade zone conference held in Vietnam could not have been more important, as they rejected the US-led plan. The Asians partners and players even rejected the United States from the entire Asian trade zone, but did include Australia and New Zealand. The incredibly stupid naive US-led plan, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, attempted to create a trade zone with Asia which would have blocked China. Imagine the incredibly obtuse blockheaded maneuver of trying to have all of Asia not conduct facilitated trade with China, its ...
TPP trade talks spark protest Published: 9:20AM Monday December 03, 2012 Source: ONE News Long running talks to hammer out a Free Trade Agreement between 11 Asia Pacific countries have resumed in Auckland, sparking criticism and protest. Opponents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) say the high level negotiations are undemocratic, and warn promised benefits will come at a cost. Placard-waving protesters made no secret of their opposition to high levels talks that have brought 500 international trade negotiators to New Zealand. "It's being held in secret," said Robert Reid of First union. "I mean this is the umpteenth meeting that's happened and we still don't know what's in the agreement." A group of international experts in fields including public health, consumer rights and labour say they have been locked out of the discussions until a "stakeholder" day scheduled for Friday. Law professor Jane Kelsey said the group of experts is "locked out of the entire Sky City Convention Centre for all 10 days e ...
