El Acuerdo Transpacífico de Cooperación Económica o simplemente Acuerdo Transpacífico, fue pactado en octubre de 2015 entre Estados Unidos y otros 11 países de la orilla del Pacífico: Australia, Brunei, Canadá, Chile, Japón, Malasia, México, Nueva Zelanda, Perú, Singapur y Vietnam. Indonesia declaró que también se uniría. El tratado aún debe ser ratificado.

El capítulo de inversión que se filtró al público, revela que el arreglo incluye un mecanismo de arbitraje de disputas entre inversionistas y Estados (ISDS). Los grupos de la sociedad civil han tronado contra el mecanismo, puesto que concede a los inversionistas o compañías del extranjero poderes desproporcionados frente a los gobiernos o las compañías locales. Los inversionistas extranjeros podrían darle la vuelta a las cortes jurídicas nacionales y recurrir a un sistema paralelo de justicia, confeccionado especialmente para ellos.

La salud pública, el ambiente y otras “salvaguardas” de interés público, serian socavados por las previsiones ISDS en el ATP.
