Registration is now open for those stakeholders interested in attending the 13th Round of the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations taking place in San Diego, California from July 2-10, 2012. USTR will be hosting a Direct Stakeholder Engagement event on Monday, July 2, 2012. This event will provide stakeholders the opportunity to speak directly and one-on-one with negotiators, raise questions, and share their views.
We tried this format at the last round in Dallas, and most stakeholders expressed their preference for this one-on-one engagement. Other stakeholders said they would like the opportunity to make presentations to negotiators as in earlier negotiating rounds and we will accommodate these requests. In addition, there will be a stakeholder briefing on Tuesday morning, July 3, 2012, at 10 am.
The Direct Stakeholder Engagement will take place on Monday, July 2, 2012 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront from 11 am-2 pm. The registration deadline is June 15, 2012. We will be unable to accommodate any registrations received after 5 pm EST on June 15, 2012.
