After TPP: Asia and the Pacific Alliance (Complete)

NEW YORK, October 22, 2018 — The United States' withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership in early 2017 was a massive setback in the quest to reduce trade barriers across the Pacific Rim — but in the months since, participating countries from Asia and Latin America have maintained a firm commitment to open markets.

Asia Society Policy Institute Vice President Wendy Cutler, a top U.S. negotiator for TPP, hosts a discussion about trade and the Pacific Alliance with Francisco del Campo Lagos, consul general of Chile in New York; Diego Gómez Pickering, consul general of Mexico in New York; María Susana Landaveri Porturas, consul general of Peru in New York; María Isabel Nieto Jaramillo, consul general of Colombia in New York, and Jasmine Wee, consul general of Singapore in New York. Katia Bouazza, head of Latin America, Global Banking, at HSBC provided introductory remarks. (1 hr., 12 min.)
