To Macdonald-Laurier Institute Senior Fellow Laura Dawson, the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s importance far outweighs its relatively low-profile.
“The TPP is the most important trade agreement that nobody’s heard of”, says Dawson.
Dawson appeared on TVO’s the Agenda on May 22, 2015 to discuss the importance of the TPP for Canada.

- Create a footprint for Canadian businesses in Asian trade markets.
