U.S. Business Coalition for TPP

The U.S. Business Coalition for TPP is a broad-based and cross-sectoral group of U.S. companies and associations representing the principal sectors of the U.S. economy including agriculture, manufacturing, merchandising, processing, publishing, retailing and services. The U.S. Business Coalition for TPP supports the negotiation of a comprehensive, high-standard and commercially meaningful Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement that will open markets for U.S. farmers, manufacturers and service providers, increase U.S. exports, and support American jobs.

Principles
A successful TPP agreement should increase U.S. exports and economic opportunities for Americans, support American jobs, and strengthen trade enforcement tools. The TPP should also advance security, stability and prosperity throughout the Asia-Pacific region. To achieve these important goals, we believe that a successful TPP agreement should include the following core principles:

1. A Comprehensive Agreement
2. A Commercially Meaningful Agreement
3. A Final Agreement Completed In 2015
4. An Agreement That Simplifies Trade And Enhances Competitiveness
5. An Agreement That Facilitates Trade And Strengthens Production And Supply Chains
6. An Agreement That Enhances Regulatory Coherence
7. An Agreement That Adopts The Highest Standards Of Intellectual-Property Protection
8. An Agreement That Promotes And Protects Inbound And Outbound Investment
9. An Agreement That Improves Transparency And Reduces Corruption
10. An Agreement That Promotes Open And Equal Procurement Opportunities
11. An Agreement That Promotes Fair Competition And A Level Playing Field
12. An Agreement That Lowers Prices, Expands Consumer Choices, And Enhances Competitiveness
13. An Agreement That Prohibits Roll-Backs Of Market Access
14. A ”Living” Agreement That Welcomes Additional Parties And Evolves To Address New Trade And Investment Issues As They Arise
15. An Agreement That Promotes The Rule Of Law And The Protection Of The Environment And Workers In Each Of The TPP Countries
