CCJP endorses AFTINET Letter to Minister for Trade and Investment re: concerns with the TPP

Posted 21 May 2014 04:00PM

The Hon. Andrew Robb AO MP
Minister for Trade and Investment
Parliament House
Canberra
 

Dear Minister Robb,

I am concerned about the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, which failed to meet the deadline for completion in 2013 because of community opposition in all negotiating countries. The TPP is not just a trade agreement and could impact on many important areas of Australian public policy.

The TPP could allow foreign investors to sue Australian governments

The TPP process lacks democracy and transparency
