Oceana Aims to Protect Marine Resources in Trans-Pacific Partnership

In December 2009, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) formally notified Congress of the Obama Administration's intent to enter into negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a regional, Asia-Pacific trade agreement.

The initial TPP negotiating partners include Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. The U.S. objective is to expand on this initial group to include additional countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region. 

Oceana has been working to encourage the United States to pursue a marine environment agreement that will promote the sustainable trade and management of ocean resources as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement.
