TPP Talks on Textiles and Rules of Origin Held in Ottawa July 3rd through 9th

Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development ("DFATD") has confirmed that Trans-Pacific Partnership ("TPP") chief negotiators met in Ottawa from July 4 to July 12 to discuss labor, state-owned enterprises, services, investment, and all areas of market access, among others. These discussions ran concurrent with a small number of working-level, technical group meetings held with the objective of advancing remaining rules. The working groups that met included:
  • Intellectual Property ("IP") from July 6-10,
  • Investment from July 6-8,
  • Stated Owned Enterprises ("SOEs") from July 9-12 and
  • Rules of Origins ("ROO")/Textiles from July 3-9.
Canada held several bilateral meetings to advance our interests across several areas of the negotiations.
