TPP signed in New Zealand

12 nations involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership have two years to vote on the plan.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was signed by representatives of its 12 member nations in Auckland, New Zealand, on Feb. 3.

The 12 nations involved - the United States, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru – account for 40% of the world’s economy.

The pact is supported by many agricultural groups in the United States, but others fear the pact will ship jobs to developing countries.
