Biggest deal in Australian history "negotiated in secrecy"

GREENS Trade spokesperson Senator Peter Whish-Wilson will speak on the Trans Pacific Partnership at a forum at the Byron Community Centre from 6.30pm tomorrow.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement proposes a free trade agreement between 12 countries including Australia, New Zealand, United States, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia.

Senator Whish-Wilson said it would be the biggest trade deal in Australia's history but was "being negotiated in total secrecy".

"It's unacceptable that large corporations have been able to see portions of the text, and lobby to effect changes, while the public at large and people within government get no say," he said.
