Following repeated and widespread calls for more transparency into the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations the United States is conducting with 11 other countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) released this week a document outlining the United States’ goals and objectives for this agreement and the main elements of each chapter from the U.S. perspective.

The USTR document is available here.  USTR emphasized that many of the elements detailed in the document are not settled and that there is still work to be done to achieve them among fellow participants, which include  Australia, Brunei, Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.
