Mexico's TPP Entry: BIO Submits Comments to USTR

BIO supports the President’s decision to include Mexico in the TPP trade negotiations. Providing effective intellectual property protection for biological products is a central focus for BIO and its members. The TPP provides an excellent opportunity for the US Government to preserve the incentives for the development of new biological medicines. With this goal in mind, we urge USTR to ensure that the TPP trade agreement expressly include measures that provide adequate and effective exclusivity and enforcement of data exclusivity for biological products.
