Abstract

If it were implemented, the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement would lower import barriers and facilitate export
for many of California's significant agricultural exports to Pacific Rim nations—most importantly in Japan. By
modestly improving growth prospects, it would also help create larger markets in developing countries—most
importantly Vietnam.
