Round 16 of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations will take place at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore, from March 4-13, 2013. Registration is now open for TPP stakeholders interested to participate in the stakeholder programme.
The Stakeholder Engagement Event is scheduled for 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, also at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. Tables to display and distribute TPP-relevant materials will be set up for stakeholders who requested for one, on a first-come-first-served basis. At the event, stakeholders will have the opportunity to raise questions and share views directly with negotiators and other stakeholders. This will be followed by a Stakeholder Briefing with the Chief Negotiators of each TPP delegation from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
All stakeholders who would like to share their views on the TPP with negotiators and other stakeholders are welcome. Please note that registration will close at 5pm (Singapore Time) on Friday, February 22, 2013. The organisers regret that they will not be able to process late registrations or on-the-spot registrations at the event.
