YAKIMA, WA (AP) - Washington fruit growers are hoping the Trans-Pacific Partnership will produce fewer tariffs when their crops are exported to other nations.
    
But many details of the proposed trade agreement between 12 Pacific Rim nations remain under wraps and final passage is far from certain.
    
The Trans-Pacific Partnership would create a trade network of lowered tariffs for hundreds of billions of dollars worth of goods, from medicine to airplane parts to food, between the United States and 11 other nations in Asia, North America and South America.
    
After five years of talks, negotiators agreed to the TPP in principle earlier this month in Atlanta, though each government has yet to approve it.
