    Just to show how both the TPP and the TTIP are loaded in favour of industries.


    "Freedom of Information work from IP Watch has brought about the release of a pile of e-mails detailing relations between the US Trade Representative and various industry lobbies that have been wish-listing the Trans Pacific Partnership process.

    Although often heavily redacted, the e-mails let slip the occasional gems – such as when Jim DeLisi of Fanwood Chemical is pleasantly “surprised” to find that that USTR had used “our rules” to draft rules of origin in the agreement."

    Hi Dieseltaylor,

    Thank you for the link.

    Sadly it doesn't surprise me that industry lobby groups are involved in these negotiations as the new trade regulations are designed to benefit their companies not people or the environment. I bet even the companies are surprised at how much input they are able to have.

    I found this stakeholders map the other month which lists companies position on TTIP according to the British government.


    Bets wishes,
