The lead negotiators for 12 countries involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership began meeting today in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The TPP is a potential new trade deal that would open up markets among nations along the Pacific Rim.
The negotiations have largely been secretive so far, but the agreement is expected to impact jobs, the environment, consumer safety and more.
Last week, transparency organization WikiLeaks published leaked chapters of the TPP covering intellectual patents, and the organization's co-founder, Julian Assange, slammed the deal.
