WASHINGTON, Sept. 24, 2015 - Chief negotiators for the U.S. and 11 other countries involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership are scheduled to continue their talks in Atlanta on Sept. 26 followed by a meeting of the nations' trade ministers.
Following the talks in Hawaii, U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman described the session as “productive” and said there were “only a handful of issues that needed further work.”

In addition to the U.S., Canada, Japan and Australia, the other TPP nations are Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Peru and Vietnam.
