NZ Labour says TPP threatens sovereignty

26 January 2016

The New Zealand Labour Party has released a statement expressing its concern that the TPP threatens sovereignty for little economic gain.

Opposition leader Andrew Little told the media:

“This analysis confirms the Trans Pacific Partnership will prevent future governments making laws in the interest of New Zealand.

“The public is still in the dark over what this deal means for Pharmac and the future cost of medicines.”

He also emphasised that many Kiwis are opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal.
