26 Sep

Rayburn House Office Building - Room B-338

50 Independence Ave SW , Washington

The Progressive Policy Institute invites you to a Monday, September 26th lunch-time event on how the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement would help boost exports by America’s small and mid-sized businesses.

The event will feature opening remarks by Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) and a keynote address by Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. The program will also include a panel discussion on the growing opportunities and continuing challenges that America’s smaller exporters see in global trade, especially in TPP countries.

This luncheon program will highlight key issues raised in PPI’s new report, “A Big Deal for Small Business: Seven Stories of How the Trans-Pacific Partnership Would Boost America’s Small Exporters,” which will be released at the event. In particular, the event will focus on the many practical, real-world ways in which TPP reforms will make exporting faster, easier, cheaper, and more certain for our small exporters, and on how growing small business trade would help spread trade’s benefits to more Americans.
