Nine business associations sent an open letter (attached) to the chief negotiators of the Trans-Pacific Partnership who are currently meeting in Washington, D.C.   The letter states in part:

“The U.S. business community is concerned that the TPP as negotiated to date has yet to achieve the level of ambition pledged by the governments.  We urge you to redouble your efforts toward the goal of a comprehensive, high-standard, and commercially meaningful agreement that removes barriers to trade and investment and addresses 21st Century challenges in all sectors. We stand ready to support you in achieving this outcome.”
