TPP Round 15 in Auckland
More than 500 delegates from the 11 TPP participating countries met from 3 to 12 December in Auckland with negotiating teams from Canada and Mexico coming to the table for the first time.
In a constructive and busy Round 15 of TPP, progress continued across the whole negotiation in order to set a platform that could enable the conclusion of a deal in 2013. To read more on the outcomes of the round, and the latest news on TPP, please visit “TPP Talk” (English only).
