(Sept. 6-15, 2012/Leesburg, VA)
The next negotiating round of the Trans- Pacific Partnership will take place in Leesburg, Virginia from September 6-15, 2012. USTR will be hosting a Direct Stakeholder Engagement event on Sunday, September 9, 2012. ASH urges the United States Trade Representative to submit its draft tobacco exception when negotiators meet in Leesburg Virginia to discuss the TPP, a giant free trade agreement among 11 countries. USTR announced the exception in May, but two negotiating rounds have now come and gone and our negotiation partners have yet to see it.
