Interview with Stephen Jacobi on The Beatson Interview

by | Oct 29, 2013 | Uncategorized

Check out this interview with NZUS Council Executive Director Stephen Jacobi, and Jane Kelsey on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). This took place on The Beatson Interview show, and aired on 15 October 2013.

There has been great progress around TPP lately, with the NZ-Japan Partnership Forum happening in Tokyo, Japan, and the succesful APEC Leaders’ Summit in Bali, Indonesia.

TPP Leaders have confirmed that TPP is on track to deliver an ambitious, high quality and comprehensive outcome. You can read the full Leaders Statement here.

TPP is still a work in progress but is entering the end game. Negotiators have more hard talk to get through. The issues under discussion are substantive and getting it right is important. But the Leaders’ statement is pretty clear about what they expect to happen and the business community will be watching this process and doing all it can to ensure that TPP is brought home.
