The company has or intends to enter into a medical services contract with PLAN, “the TPA contract”. In addition to our congressionally mandated committees of industrial and public consultants, the United States consults with all interested parties in each round of negotiations on trade agreements and in between. We do this to exchange information and get views that improve the negotiated product. These stakeholders included representatives of the scientific community, trade unions, the private sector and non-governmental organizations for the TPP. Under the AAA, this activity would continue and be strengthened. TPA HELPS EXPORT MORE “MADE IN AMERICA” PRODUCTS ABROADWe know that exports support American jobs. And we know that U.S. trade agreements keep these exports job-creating: our agreements with only 20 partners support 46% of our country`s total merchandise exports. In fact, since 2009, exports have accounted for one-third of U.S. growth.
The trade agreements we are currently working on – T-TIP and TPP – account for 65% of global trade in goods and services and would account for 69% of US exports. TPA will help bring these agreements into force and support U.S. jobs. These exclusive third-party license agreements allow IQVIA customers to share IQVIA information with suppliers for a predefined purpose and in the exclusive interest of the requesting IQVIA customer.

The U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA) entered into effect on October 31, 2012. The TPA is a comprehensive free trade agreement that removes tariffs and removes barriers to U.S. services, including financial services.

TPA IMPROVES TRADE AGREEMENTS – AND MAKES THE U.S. MORE COMPETITIVE IN THE WORLD By TPA, Congress outlines the high-level goals and priorities that U.S. negotiators must pursue in trade deals, a process that helps build consensus on U.S. trade policy. More than 250 trade agreements between other countries are in force and many more are under negotiation. While these agreements are not the high-quality and comprehensive trade agreements negotiated by the United States, foreign companies have better and cheaper access to these markets, which relatively penalizes American workers, businesses and farmers. Indeed, China and Europe are currently negotiating agreements with other Asia-Pacific partners that could crowd out U.S.
products, services, and agricultural products and set standards that exclude U.S. exports from their markets. The Third Party Access program allows IQVIA customers to request a limited-use license agreement for a third party in order to provide services to that customer. The TPA does not give new power to the executive. TPA is a legislative procedure drafted by Congress, by which Congress defines the negotiating objectives of the United States and defines a detailed monitoring and consultation process for trade negotiations. . . .
