All the chatter about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement leaves a lot of business owners scratching their heads and wondering, “what’s in it for me?” Let me get right to the point: plenty!
In case you don’t follow my writings at the About.com Import and Export or the Global Small Business Blog sites, I want to make sure you caught the interview I conducted with Karen Kerrigan, president and CEO of Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council). She recently participated in the White House briefing on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) held in D.C. Nov. 18. Her bio can be found: http://www.sbecouncil.org/about-us/key-staff/. Here’s a snippet of what she covers in our two-part interview.
The Top 5 Benefits to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement — this article addresses the “what’s in it for me?” question. The second part of the interview covers Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Trade Booster for the World — singling out a small business success story in Cobalt Enterprises and other ways TPP will boost business for exporters.
