The Office of Multilateral Trade Affairs (MTA or EEB/TPP/MTA) is one of four offices in the U.S. State Department's Trade Policy and Programs.[1]

"The Office of Multilateral Trade Affairs... leads the State Department's trade policy activities in multilateral institutions, including the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It provides technical expertise in regional and bilateral trade negotiations including labor, environment, services, government procurement, customs trade remedies, and trade capacity building. MTA also supports bilateral WTO accession negotiations and U.S. Trade programs to include the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program."[2]

As of 2011, MTA was headed by Director Whitney Baird.
