Nashville Business Journal Article Outlines Details of Trans-Pacific Partnership

Nashville Business Journal

Media Mentions

April 5, 2016

The Nashville Business Journal published an article, "Think the Mega Pacific Trade Deal Won’t Impact Nashville? Think Again," outlining the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and its potential local impact. The story followed the firm's hosting of a Trans-Pacific Partnership Panel Discussion on March 31, 2016 featuring several international business leaders. 

The trade deal, which would be the largest trade agreement ever, could potentially provide tax relief and/or new market opportunities for Nashville-based businesses across a number of industry sectors, including healthcare, automotive, manufacturing and commercial transportation. As a leader in exportation among land-locked states, Tennessee has already been active in trade with those companies involved in the agreement. In 2014, more than 3,400 Tennessee companies exported $18.3 billion worth to TPP countries. 

The panel discussion was moderated by the firm's Managing Partner Todd Rolapp, and included several local and national leaders in international business, including:

  • Masami Kinefuchi, Consul-General of Japan in Nashville
  • Antwaun Griffin, Deputy Assistant Secretary for U.S. Operations at the International Trade Administration
  • Bailey Leopard, Lead Counsel at FedEx Express
  • Donald Stacy, President and CEO of Quality Filtration, LLC
  • Thad McBride, Chair of Bass, Berry & Sims' International Trade practice
