The Trump Administration unceremoniously withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership among 12 Pacific Rim nations before the pact was even officially born. Along with it went the potential for key protections of American intellectual property rights. Now, with the Biden Administration voicing a commitment to multilateral trade pacts, might the U.S. be in a mood to rejoin TPP (now called the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, or CPTPP)? And would a return to this historical treaty protect American I.P. from China and other nations seeking to poach it for their own purposes? On this episode, we weigh the possibility (and complications) of securing the nation’s I.P. rights through the CPTPP, with the help of Joanna Shelton, a non-resident senior associate with the Economics Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
