Trans-Pacific Partnership

North American heads of state met in Mexico on Wednesday to discuss the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Bipartisan opposition grew to the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty on Thursday as members of U.S. Congress who oppose the talks sent numerous letters to President Barack Obama and a secret 95-page draft chapter on intellectual property rights was published by WikiLeaks.

Yesterday U.S. President Barack Obama and his Chilean counterpart, Sebastian Piñera, met at the White House to discuss economic development, trade and their commitment to the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)—a free trade agreement being negotiated among 11 Pacific Rim countries.

Today, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera will set off on a week-long trip through the hemisphere, making his first official visit to the United States since he took office in 2010. He will also travel to Canada, El Salvador and Panama.

Assuming the U.S. government will be operational past the March 18 funding deadline, President Obama will make his first trip to Latin America from March 19-23.
