Discussion online about TPPA (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement)
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) is a “free trade” agreement currently under negotiation between NZ and 8 other countries.
Trade is only a minor part of the agreement.
A Trans-Pacific Partnership would be an agreement that guarantees special rights to foreign investors.
If these negotiations succeed they will create a mega-treaty across 9 countries thatwill put a straight jacket around what policies and laws our governments can adopt for the next century.
