Apple Supports the TPP, and Has a Friend in the Right Place
by Alex Lazar on May 13, 2015
President Barack Obama and big business haven’t always agreed on hot-button issues, but they both seem to be overwhelmingly in favor of approving the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.
One such business is the enormously profitable tech company Apple, which is listed as a member of the U.S. Business Coalition for TPP. Happily for Apple, it has a friend in the higher echelons of the Obama administration who’s well aware of the firm’s particular concerns: Undersecretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment, Catherine Novelli.
