Washington DC – The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) today applauded the launch of the bipartisan Friends of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Caucus and commended Reps. Charles Boustany (R-LA), Ron Kind (D-WI), Gregory Meeks (D-NY) and Dave Reichert (R-WA) for their leadership on the Caucus.

NFTC President Bill Reinsch released the following statement:

"With the TPP negotiators working diligently to conclude the talks in the near term, the launch of the Friends of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Caucus comes at just the right time. This agreement has the potential to be a historic, landmark agreement for the United States and our trading partners in the Asia-Pacific region. By significantly increasing U.S. economic engagement with the 11 other countries and expanding market access for U.S. businesses and workers, the agreement will promote growth and support job creation. We need Congressional champions on the Hill to help advance this ambitious agreement, and we commend Reps. Boustany, Kind, Meeks and Reichert for their leadership and recognizing the importance of TPP to the U.S. economy."
