The news was welcomed by legislators from agricultural states.
President Donald Trump at a White House meeting Thursday during which he reportedly expressed interest in the US rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.
US President Donald Trump's sudden change of mind on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is often referred to as a result of the US leader's unpredictability, but in actuality, the President's announcement falls in line with his broader strategy connecting trade and foreign affairs.
One of the White House officials said that while the president prefers negotiating bilateral trade deals, a multilateral deal with the TPP countries would counter Chinese competition and would be faster than negotiating one-on-one with each of the 11 other nations.
I will say this: The United States has a lot to offer, with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world.
Just hours earlier, Mr Trump had unexpectedly said the U.S. would consider rejoining the pact. Russian Federation said it visited the sight of the suspected attack and found no evidence to support the claims.

Intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack on Saturday, according to the PM. Dunford said there was some "activity" by Syrian surface-to-air missiles, but there were no reports of USA or allied casualties.
"It is an accord like a glass sculpture".
"It's hard to bring part of the pact and renegotiate it", he said, calling it a "well-balanced pact" that carefully addressed the needs of the current 11 member nations.
"We've seen this before with gun control and other initiatives - where [the president] totally flips his script with a group of senators but didn't follow up and do anything with it".
Because the deal was centered heavily on regulatory policy under President Obama, some wonder how re-entry fits into the Trump administration's overall goals.
He has previously criticized multination pacts, preferring to negotiate one-on-one with other countries.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also flagged challenges to the USA rejoining the pact.
But Australia's Trade Minister Steven Ciobo said he "can't see any appetite for any kind of wholesale renegotiations of the TPP deal to accommodate the United States". If the Europeans are smart, they'll work with USA negotiators to convince Trump that new agreements have transformed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action from the worst deal in history to a diplomatic masterstroke.

She added that such unilateral military action bypassing the United Nations Security Council will complicate the Syrian conflict. They said that there had been a "full week of consultations" with White House national security team members and allied nations.
"Syria's responsible. We are all in agreement", State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said earlier Friday.
His comments were echoed Saturday by Nikki Haley, the us ambassador to the United Nations, who said the president told her the military was "locked and loaded" if Syria launched another chemical weapons attack.
But, that also depends on how the negotiations move forward.
It is fair to surmise that Trump had no idea what was in the TPP and could not identify anything specifically wrong with it.
Even before Trump's official withdrawal a year ago, US participation in the pact was seen as increasingly unlikely due to opposition in the US Congress.
"But he multiple times reaffirmed the point that TPP might be easier for us to join now once the TPP-11 is aligned and we might be the 12th party to those negotiations, as opposed to the long process that it took to get to TPP".
"There is no conceivable way to revive it without totally betraying working people", he said.

Out of the four states recently or now undergoing teacher protests, only Arizona does not have state-determined teacher salaries. The Arizona Educators United coalition had called for 20% pay raises, but it wasn't satisfied after Ducey's announcement.
