The Trans-Pacific Partnership may have another country joining its ranks.

Capitol Hill reported that according to U.S. business officials, China has a growing interest in joining the TPP.

It was not long ago that the Chinese government referred to the Asia-Pacific trade agreement as a scheme to keep China from gaining global ground.  After Japan joined talks, Chinese officials appeared more positive toward the TPP.

Leaders of the 12 nations involved in the negotiations said they plan on finishing the deal by the end of the year.
