Trans Pacific Partnership

The US Trade Representative website posts:

The next negotiating round of the Trans-Pacific Partnership will take place in Leesburg, Virginia from September 6-15, 2012. As in the past, USTR will be hosting a Direct Stakeholder Engagement event to provide stakeholders the opportunity to speak directly and one-on-one with negotiators, raise questions, and share their views as well as a stakeholder briefing.

Other links talk about the lack of interim transparency and drafts of agreements to date, continuance of secret deliberations when making decisions on trade ‘infractions. and the enhanced ability of companies to sue domestic industries (a la WTO) in domestic courts:
