TPP Export Opportunities from the U.S.

The TPP will create great opportunities for trade by eliminating more than 18,000 tariffs on U.S.-made products sold overseas and establishing the highest standards on labor, the environment, and the digital economy ever to be included in a trade agreement. The agreement’s impact on trade between the U.S. and the five TPP countries with which the United States does not yet have a Free Trade Agreement will be particularly profound. These include large, well-established markets like Japan, where U.S. companies exported $66.8 billion in goods, and growing markets like Malaysia and Vietnam, where U.S. goods exports totaled $13 billion and $5.7 billion in 2014, respectively.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership provides great opportunities for expanded trade between Vietnam and the United States. The resources like the TPP Country Factsheets (see below links) and previously released 15 Industry Factsheets -all developed by staff at the Department of Commerce and available at will provide useful information for anyone who wants to learn more about the TPP agreement and the trade opportunities.
