PDAC, MAC support Trans-Pacific Partnership
from Canadian Mining Journal
The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and the Mining Association of Canada have both come out with support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). As the federal government sees it, the TPP would become the framework for trade between Canada and several Pacific Rim countries. Not only does it seek to lower trade barriers, but also would standardize intellectual property rights, enforce standards for labour and environmental law, and establish an investor-state dispute settlement process.
