Please note the panel discussion and Q&A portion of this event will be conducted off-the-record.

President Obama and Prime Minister Abe have both declared their commitment to reach a long-anticipated agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Abe has even called it a key element of Japan’s long-term growth strategy. After talks were stalled for months, both administrations have actively renewed their efforts to wrap up negotiations, hoping to reach an agreement within the next couple of months. In this panel discussion, leading experts from Japan and the U.S. explore the importance of this historic trade agreement, the mutual benefits it offers to both countries, and how the TPP will impact domestic and international markets.
