Trade Minister welcomes Canada and Mexico to Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
New Zealand Minister of Trade, Tim Groser, spoke on behalf of the current nine members in welcoming Canada and Mexico to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. TPP aims to create a regional free trade agreement involving nine Asia Pacific countries: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, the United States, Viet Nam and New Zealand. The agreement would deepen economic ties between its diverse members by opening up trade in goods and services, boosting investment flows, and promoting closer links across a range of economic policy and regulatory issues.
