  • Roundtable with Congressman Adam SmithMarch 18, 2014

    The Washington Council on International Trade hosted a discussion on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement currently under negotiation between the United States and eleven other Asian Pacific economies. Congressman Adam Smith (WA-09) discussed TPP and the benefits its implementation would have for Washington state's international competitiveness.


    Completing the TPP trade negotiations is a top priority for Washington elected and business leadership, as Asia is a primary market for Washington exports. TPP would lower barriers to trade and implement uniform regulations and fair intellectual property protection. The passage of TPP would help foster growth and innovation in Washington state's life sciences sector.
