KTG Webinar: "TPP - is it really DOA?" with Linda Gerber
Audience: All McCombs Alumni
Date: Friday, March 24, 2017, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
On his first full work day, Donald Trump formally cancelled the Trans-Pacific Partnership, as he had promised during his campaign. The 12 nation trade pact, negotiated under the Obama administration, and strongly backed by Obama at the end of his tenure, officially became a dead deal. But did it? Could a "Son of TPP" resurface, and if so, what sort of scenario might lead to a TPP resurrection? And if the deal is truly dead, what other scenarios might unfold? In this webinar we’ll explore what may happen in terms of future multilateral trade arrangements involving TPP participants, and what others, including China, may be involved in new negotiations.
