Trans-Pacific Partnership: What you need to know about the most progressive trade agreement in history

Why We Trade

America’s trade policy may seem remote and technical, but it has a significant impact on the strength of our economy and the lives of millions of Americans. If the companies you buy from everyday also sell their products to customers abroad, they are more likely to expand and create jobs here at home. In fact, trade has played an indispensable role in America’s resurgence from the Great Recession – accounting for nearly one-third of our overall economic growth since the end of the recession in mid-2009.
