Trans-Pacific Partnership Speaker Series

Recovery through Growth in Asia and the Next Generation of Regional Trade Agreements

This initiative seeks to put the TPP and trade in the larger foreign policy and national security context as the United States “rebalances” toward Asia.

The TPP is an ongoing trade negotiation involving the United States and eight other nations from around the Asia Pacific including Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.  The agreement would serve as the highest-level trade agreement linking the United States and countries across the Pacific and would bolster U.S. exports and economic growth as well as its foreign policy and national security in Asia. 

The initiative is led by Ernest Bower, Senior Adviser and Chair for Southeast Studies, and Scott Miller, Scholl Chair in International Business, CSIS. Scott's predecessor, Meredith Broadbent, helped found the series.
