Why support the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement?
Caterpillar has been a consistent, forceful voice for trade throughout our 90-year history. We compete best in a free trade environment. This trade agreement aims to reduce trade barriers among the 12 participating countries that all border the Pacific Ocean. Caterpillar strongly urges Congress to support passage of the TPP.
All of this means a level playing field that it will make it easier for us to sell more products to customers all over the world. More sales mean more orders and more machines for us to build, keeping us hard at work. Caterpillar employees know the importance of free trade. In the past five years, Caterpillar has exported more than $87 billion in products made at our factories in the United States—exports that support tens of thousands of U.S. jobs.
Let’s take a closer look at what TPP means at Caterpillar East Peoria.
