No Decision on Opening TPP to Additional Participants
Three countries that hope to get in on the Trans-Pacific Partnership will have to continue to wait for admission to the talks. The nine nations currently involved in the discussions - according to a U.S. trade official - are at different stages of determining if Japan, Canada and Mexico can join. Negotiators are wrapping up the latest round of talks this week in Dallas. During the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation trade ministers meeting in Russia early next month - U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk is expected to meet with his TPP counterparts to discuss progress and agree on a plan for moving forward.
