What does TPP mean?

TPP is an acronym for the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, a proposed agreement between 12 Pacific Rim countries and the US. As of 2017, Trump has pulled the US out of this trade partnership. The rest of the countries in the deal have forged ahead with the trade terms under the name Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).
