The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) will report by November 19 its analysis of including Mexico and Canada in the negotiations being conducted through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).  The analysis is at the request of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.  The November report will be an update of ITC’s earlier report to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative that continues to be held as confidential.

The previous report focused on the effects of duty-free treatment for the United States importing products from all ten of the current TPP member countries and on U.S. industries producing products that are directly competitive to industries in other TPP countries.  The new study will also have the same focus.
