The presentation is free and open to the public. Catherine deLutio, Senior Research Associate at the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine will facilitate the program. deLutio is the primary author of a report assessing the TPP’s potential impact on Maine’s overall economy and on various industries.

The TPP is a proposed free-trade agreement between twelve Pacific-rim countries, including the United States, that together account for over one-third of the global economy. In addition to lowering traditional trade barriers such as tariffs and quotas, the TPP seeks to establish international standards on labor practices, e-commerce, financial services, and other modern trade issues.

deLutio will discuss the potential economic impact of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Maine. Previously deLutio served as Maine State Economist, advising the Governor and state agencies on economic, demographic, and fiscal issues. She has served on the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s New England Public Policy Center Advisory Board and the Maine Consensus Economic Forecasting Commission. She received a Master’s degree in economics from Fordham and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Loyola University.
