Trans-Pacific Partnership: Giant free-trade deal to link Asia-Pacific
AFTINET's Dr Patricia Ranald outlines the concerns over the TPPA in this article and radio interview from the ABC.
"The negotiations have a large number of sticking points, which are mainly caused because the US has made a number of what I would call fairly extreme demands about changing regulation.
This agreement is not just about trade. It is actually about changing regulatory frameworks at the domestic level and the US is making these demands on behalf of its major industries and corporations." - Dr Patricia Ranald, AFTINET Convener
