After seven years of negotiation, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries was finally signed last February. The pact seeks to reduce tariffs and non-tariff barriers, set common standards for labor, environmental and intellectual property protections, and strengthen economic ties among the nations involved.
However, considering the criticisms the TPP has received in many countries prior to and after its signing, years of negotiations is still needed for this agreement to be totally implemented. Thus, it is crucial for companies to ensure their full understanding of the significance and consequences of this deal to avoid potential risks and maximize international trade opportunities.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will discuss the latest issues and significant insights on strengthening your understanding of Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

Significant Issues Affecting the Global Trade Landscape
Possible Implications and Risks
Potential Challenges and Ramifications
