Yesterday, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman visited the Council on Foreign Relations to discuss President Obama's trade agenda. In a conversation with former U.S. Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky, Ambassador Froman highlighted the strategic importance of ongoing U.S. trade negotiations, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the Information Technology Agreement (ITA).

The conversation also covered the prospects for congressional trade promotion authority (TPA); the renewal of the Export-Import Bank and the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA); the status of agriculture and energy in trade negotiations; and the incorporation of labor, environmental, and currency manipulation provisions in trade agreements.

A video of the event is available here, and a transcript is available here.
