    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is one of the Obama Administration’s ambitious economic initiatives aimed to form new guidelines to govern trade and investment opportunities among the member countries, namely, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, United States, and Vietnam. These countries present more than 40% of the world GDP. The TPP involves the creation of more comfortable environment for trade and investments across 12 countries by reducing trade tariffs and setting commonlyagreed rules with the possibility to establish the Pacific single market. The TPP was a pillar of former U.S. President Barack Obama’s policy to Asia.
