Over 120 civil society members, government officials, and media attended a panel discussion featuring U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman during his recent trip to Kuala Lumpur. USTR Froman and his fellow panelists used the opportunity to address many of the misguided narratives about TPP and to highlight the benefits that TPP would bring Malaysia. The panelists took questions from the audience on issues including pharmaceuticals, small and medium-sized enterprises, and transparency in negotiations. USTR Froman also visited Prime Minister Najib Razak at his office in Putrajaya.
