The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement: The Stakes for Mexico and the United States
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) is an ambitious trade and investment agreement currently being negotiated among 12 countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Both the United States and Mexico are party to the talks. The leaders of each believe that the TPP will bolster domestic economic growth. In addition, the agreement is seen by the United States as reinforcing its strategic “pivot” to the Asia-Pacific. Mexico, for its part, fears that the TPP will strengthen competitors’ share of the giant U.S. import market. For both countries, the TPP offers an opportunity to deepen U.S.-Mexico economic ties without reopening the still-contentious North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for negotiation. It may also serve as a vehicle for advancing the current Mexican government’s economic reform agenda.
