Arlington, VA (October 5, 2015) - The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today released the following statement on the announcement that an agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been reached:

“We commend TPP trade ministers and negotiators for their hard work and diligence in reaching this historic agreement,” said TIA CEO Scott Belcher. “Last year, the Asia-Pacific region was the largest telecommunications market in the world at $1.8 trillion. The TPP will further open this region to exports of U.S.-manufactured goods, promoting jobs and economic growth here at home.
