Stakeholder registration for the 15th Round of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations is now open. New Zealand is hosting the 15th Round at the SkyCity Convention Centre in central Auckland from December 3-12, 2012.

New Zealand will host a stakeholder event at the negotiating venue on Friday, December 7, 2012.

The details are as follows:

• 9 am-2 pm: Scheduled stakeholder presentations

• 4 pm: Stakeholder briefing with Chief Negotiators from each TPP delegation

Please register online using the following link: https://secure.tcc.co.nz/ei/getdemo.ei?id=903&s=_9J00NK44D

The registration deadline is Friday, November 16th. The host will not accept late registrations nor will there be an opportunity to register on site.

If a stakeholder wishes to propose a presentation for inclusion in the schedule, an indicative topic/title can be included in the online registration process. At this stage we envisage presenters will be allocated 15 minutes to speak, though final timings will depend on demand for presentation slots.

An information pack will be provided electronically to all registered stakeholders in due course. Those who have registered to make a presentation will also be sent further information about format and other arrangements for participation.

If you have any questions about registration, stakeholder presentations or the briefing please visit www.mfat.govt.nz/tpptalk for further information.
