The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Senior Vice President, Tami Overby, joins us to discuss the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is an active supporter of TPP, a new trade agreement that U.S. Trade Representatives assert will level the playing field for American workers and businesses. It reportedly will eliminate over 18,000 taxes—in the form of tariffs—various countries place on Made-in-America products, and will significantly expand the export of Made-in-America goods and services and support American jobs.

We are pleased to invite you to a Lunch Reception with Tami who will be visiting Maine following her attendance at the 2016 APCAC Business Conference in Beijing. Speaking on behalf of the U.S. Chamber, Tami will discuss the potential benefits to American businesses and why the Chamber is advocating for ratification of the treaty as soon as possible.
