The Government is being urged to be more open about what it will be putting on the table for the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.
It's been confirmed the next round of negotiations are to be held in Auckland in December.
Auckland University law professor Jane Kelsey says the Government should be as open about these talks as it would be about a law going through Parliament.
"This agreement will have more effect on New Zealand in the future than any domestic legislation would."
Ms Kelsey says the process should be opened up so there can be proper participation, not just by New Zealanders but by people in the other 10 or so countries that are involved.
