Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) is a free trade agreement that would liberalise trade and investment between 12 Pacific-rim countries: New Zealand, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Viet Nam.
TPP negotiations were concluded in October 2015 and the Agreement was signed in February 2016.
On 23 January 2017 the United States withdrew from TPP. Representatives from the 11 remaining members have affirmed the economic and strategic importance of TPP and are assessing options to bring the TPP into force.
