SUMMARY OF THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT
On October 5, 2015, Ministers of the 12 Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries – Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, United States, and Vietnam – announced conclusion of their negotiations. The result is a high-standard, ambitious, comprehensive, and balanced agreement that will promote economic growth; support the creation and retention of jobs; enhance innovation, productivity and competitiveness; raise living standards; reduce poverty in our countries; and promote transparency, good governance, and enhanced labor and environmental protections. We envision conclusion of this agreement, with its new and high standards for trade and investment in the Asia Pacific, as an important step toward our ultimate goal of open trade and regional integration across the region.
Today the Florida District Export Council recognizes Mr. Jerry Ross for his contribution to the Florida DEC and welcomes Mr. Jim Anzalone of Compliance Assurance as the new Chairman. Mr. Ross leaves behind a productive legacy and we congratulate Mr. Anzalone on his new position.
