TPP Round Concludes in Hawaii

A ministerial-level round of Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations concluded July 31 in Hawaii. Negotiations reportedly continued through the night on Thursday, ahead of a closing press conference scheduled for Friday night.

Limited details have emerged from this round of meetings regarding agricultural market access, though dairy, rice and sugar trade issues received considerable media attention over the past week. At this point it remains unclear whether these and other outstanding issues will be resolved in the near term.
