Following the meeting between President Barack Obama and President Felipe Calderon within the framework of the G-20 Summit, held in Los Cabos last June, TPP participating countries extended an invitation to Mexico to join the Agreement. This membership will allow Mexico to fully participate in the negotiations and ensure that its interests are being considered in the discussions.
The 15th round of negotiations will be held from December 3rd to 12th in Auckland, New Zealand. Previously, Mexico will host an inter-sessional meeting, which is expected to take place in November with the participation of all TPP members.
The TPP is currently the most relevant and ambitious plurilateral trade negotiation due to the wide range of topics and disciplines included as well as the number of participating countries. In 2011, the TPP countries accounted for 18% and 15% of the world’s imports and exports, respectively, as well as 26% of the global GDP.
For Mexico, the TPP has a strategic value since it represents a platform to enhance trade integration in the Asia-Pacific region. It gives Mexico the opportunity to continue diversifying its exports and strengthen global supply chains with the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific which is currently the world's most dynamic region.

It is rare to have an opportunity to reshape an organization - especially, one that has more than 100 years of service to its members. Change is hard. It is controversial, politically sensitive and challenging, while status quo is comfortable and uncomplicated. However, change can also be invigorating, motivating and rewarding. It can offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to assume a leadership role in positioning an organization for continued success - strengthening its foundation, refocusing its priorities, enhancing its value proposition and enabling its volunteer and staff leaders to focus on the goals and objectives of the organization.
