Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

From 13 November 2013… WikiLeaks released the secret negotiated draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the largest-ever economic treaty, encompassing nations representing more than 40 per cent of the world’s GDP. The WikiLeaks release of the text comes ahead of the decisive TPP Chief Negotiators summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 19-24 November 2013.

Significantly, the released text includes the negotiation positions and disagreements between all 12 prospective member states. READ IT ALL HERE.
