Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

a proposed agreement between the United States, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam that aimed to deepen economic ties and increase trade between countries. In addition to economic benefits, the TPP was meant to substantiate U.S. leadership and influence in Asia. President Donald J. Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement in 2017, killing the trade deal, though a smaller version, without the United States, advanced.
