11 Nations Gather in Chile to Sign New Version of TPP, Without U.S.

HeadlineMar 08, 2018

And in more trade news, officials from 11 nations have gathered in Santiago, Chile, where they are slated to sign the sweeping trade agreement formerly known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or the TPP. President Trump pulled the United States out of the sweeping trade deal shortly after taking office, after years of global public resistance by those who say free trade deals benefit corporations at the expense of health and environmental regulations. But the rest of the nations involved in the pact have gone forward with the deal, now called the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will represent about a seventh of the world’s economy.
