Abstrakty
Głównym celem niniejszego artykułu jest ocena, czy Porozumienie o Strategicznym Partnerstwie Transpacyficznym poprawi konkurencyjność regionu Azji i Pacyfiku poprzez utworzenie wysokiej jakości strefy wolnego handlu (usuwającej wszystkie bariery dla handlu), biorąc pod uwagę różne przeszkody opisane w tekście. Prezydent Barack Obama postawił za cel zakończenie negocjacji dziewięciu stron do listopada 2011, ale pojawiają się wątpliwości, czy jest możliwe zakończenie negocjacji FTA, obejmującej handel dobrami i usługami, reguły pochodzenia, techniczne bariery dla handlu, ograniczenia sanitarne i fitosanitarne, prawa własności intelektualnej, a nawet zamówienia rządowe, czy politykę konkurencji stron. Potrzeba sukcesu może skłaniać do szukania rozwiązania akceptowalnego dla wszystkich stron, ale w oparciu o najmniejszy wspólny mianownik.(abstrakt oryginalny)

The basic goal of this paper is to assess, whether the Trans-Pacific Strategic Partnership will increase the competitiveness of the Asia-Pacific Region by creating a high-quality Free Trade Area, having in mind various obstacles characterized in the text. As President Barack Obama set a goal of concluding the negotiations of nine parties till November 2011, there are doubts whether it is possible to conclude negotiations of an FTA encompassing trade in goods and services, rules of origin, technical trade barriers, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, IPR, but also government procurement and competition policies in participating countries. The need for success may lead to looking for a solution acceptable for all the different parties, but of poor quality, basing on the lowest common denominator.(original abstract)
