The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade negotiation has made solid progress toward completion in many sectors. A few very sensitive sectors, including autos, remain unresolved. Further negotiations at the highest levels this week in Atlanta could well complete this exceptionally complex deal.

Panelists included:

  • Gary C. Hufbauer, Reginald Jones Senior Fellow
    Peterson Institute for International Economics
  • Daniel J. Ikenson, Director
    Herbert A. Stiefel Center for Trade Policy Studies, Cato Institute
  • Robert Vastine, Senior Industry and Innovation Fellow
    Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy
  • J. Bradford Jensen (moderator), McCrane/Shaker Chair of International Business, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University and Senior Policy Scholar, Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy
