Ambassador to the US Mike Moore is confident Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal negotiations will be "tied up" by the end of next year – with another year to get it through Congress.

Officials are due in Auckland next month for the next round of talks.

Mr Moore told TVNZ's Q + A yesterday that the negotiations were "not easy for anyone". And he noted Congress had been "supportive" of trade deals with Colombia, Panama and Korea.
