Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Ministers' Report to Leaders

On November 10, 2014, trade ministers updated the leaders of countries participating in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. Major issues include building trade in a digital economy, encouraging technological advances and providing access to medicine, and ensuring environmental protection and labor rights.
