Event Details

California-Asia Business Council is proud to be working with the US Commercial Service, US Small Business Association, and US Department of Commerce to discuss the business implications of the Transpacific Parntership (TPP). During the morning briefing, experts will discuss TPP impacts on exports, with a particular emphasis on clean energy opportunities and small business benefits. This event will end with a networking session for participants to meet our speakers and other senior business developers.

TPP will make it easier for American entrepreneurs, farmers, and small business owners to sell Made-In-America products abroad by eliminating more than 18,000 taxes & other trade barriers on American products across the 11 other countries in the TPP—barriers that put American products at an unfair disadvantage today. The TPP will boost U.S. economic growth and encourage exports to some of the most dynamic and fastest growing countries in the world.
