February 2016 – Signed on February 4, 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (once in force) will cover a market of 800 million people representing 40% of global GDP. In the face of extreme opposition to investment protections in Europe and elsewhere, the TPP represents a reaffirmation of a multilateral approach to establishing minimum investment protection standards and of access by investors to arbitration to enforce those rights.
In this NYIAC breakfast seminar*, taking place on February 24, 2016 from 8:30am-10:00am at NYIAC, James Hosking of Chaffetz Lindsey LLP provides an overview of the key provisions of the TTP, how it differs from existing treaties, and what it suggests about the future of investor-state dispute settlement.
*The program is only open to NYIAC Individual Members, who are invited to RSVP by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit https://nyiac.org/services/membership to learn more about becoming an individual member of NYIAC.
