As the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) negotiations begin in
Dallas, Texas, 32 legal academics from current or potential future TPP
negotiating countries wrote to United States Trade Representative Ron
Kirk today. The letter, the text of which is posted below, criticizes
the USTR decision to cancel full day stakeholder presentations for the
current round of negotiations. The letter calls on the administration to
"reverse course" and work to expand participation and transparency by
giving the general public the same rights to see US proposals in the
negotiation as cleared corporate advisers now have.
