Senator Byron Dorgan: Why the Fashion Industry Should Monitor the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, is one of the key buzzwords in today’s global marketplace. The policy issues involved in the TPP are inherently linked to the fashion and apparel industry and its internationally interlaced supply chains. Recently, President Obama visited Nike headquarters to promote his trade agenda, including the TPP. Although negotiations are still in progress, his appearance at the iconic, international apparel brand signals the impact this major trade agreement has on the fashion and apparel industry.

In this episode of Fashion Counsel, partner Anthony Lupo talks with former Senator Byron Dorgan, senior policy advisor in the Government Relations practice, about why fashion companies should monitor the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations.
