Press Release


HOT SPRINGS – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement after reports of a Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal was reached between the U.S. and 11 other countries:

“The final text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal has not yet been released,” Westerman said. “Throughout the negotiations during my time in Congress, I have met with negotiators from the Office of the United States Trade Representative to review draft documents and to provide input so the businesses and citizens of Arkansas will benefit from this deal. I will be reviewing the final proposed trade deal over the coming months in order to determine whether the negotiators have listened to my input, to verify that the agreement would create new markets for Arkansas products, and to decide if it is in the best interest of the Fourth District, Arkansas and United States workers and economies.”
