The MPA hires former assistant US trade representative for IP

Before joining the MPA, McCoy served as assistant US trade representative for intellectual property and innovation in the Office of the US Trade Representative. He was the US trade negotiator in the WTO TRIPS Council and the US free trade agreements.
