The Trans Pacific Partnership and Oklahoma
While the campaign trail has been littered with debates about the efficacy of free trade agreements, including the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership, the details of these agreements are difficult to decipher for the average Oklahoman. Thanks to our partners at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Oklahoma City office, the numbers and details of Oklahoma’s connections to TPP countries is visible.
Some of the more interesting figures include:
- 52 percent of Oklahoma’s goods exports went to TPP countries in 2014
- 1,780 companies from Oklahoma exported goods to TPP countries in 2013 – 83 percent were small and medium sized companies
