ABSTRACT
The article suggests the potential and pitfalls of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) accord being negotiated by the U.S. and European Union (EU) that would see the expansion of investment and business in the Asia Pacific region and the EU. Trade observers argued over the implication of the TPP for the role of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Other industry executives anticipate better export opportunities and more regulatory cohesion resulting from the TTIP.
