TPP now renamed to CPTPP

November 13, 2017

Members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership have agreed a new framework to revive the proposed trade deal, following US withdrawal earlier this year.

Meeting on the sidelines the Apec summit in Vietnam, the remaining eleven nations released a joint statement saying they were committed to free and open trade.

They have agreed to change the name from Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to the  Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

What is the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

  • The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a free trade agreement designed to change trade and investment between 11 Pacific-Rim countries.
  • TPP would give New Zealand better access to globally significant markets. It would diversify New Zealand’s trade and investment relationships, and provide a platform to build on the NZ$28 billion of New Zealand goods and services exported to TPP countries in 2014.
  • The countries working towards an agreement are Canada, Australia, Chile, New Zealand, Brunei, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru and Vietnam.
  • However, analysts say the trade pact is less appealing to some nations without access to the huge US market.
  • The bid to revive the TPP, which would have covered 40% of the global economy, was led by trade ministers from Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
