Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement

If you are a citizen of one of the Trans-Pacific Partnership member countries, (Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the United States, Vietnam), you can now download and read 6,000 pages across 30 chapters at one computer screen.

As usual with trade agreements impacting multiple countries, there are differences in terminology, exceptions, special circumstances that each country will want to cross-compare during ratification.

I don’t see analysts scrolling thousands of pages in MS Word.

When the text is hosted in a free-form search Knowledge base, things go a lot easier.

In the example view below, typing the name of a member country highlights all references to that country and allows a user to selectively browse the agreement.  Since the Chapter Forms are customizable, it’s very easy to add a “Comments” field and browse the content as part of any connect-the-dots undertaking.
