11 states reach accord on implementing TPP without US

11 states reach accord on implementing TPP without US

Jacinda Ardern is looking to secure some amendments to investor state dispute settlement clauses, while still signing New Zealand onto the TPP - 11. She will reiterate her offer to resettle 150 of Australia's refugees - as authorities prepare to move on asylum seekers and refugees still at the closed detention centre, using force if necessary.

Talks on a joint communique from APEC leaders have been held up by wrangling over US demands for changes to the language used concerning issues such as free trade and protectionism, officials at the talks said.

Late Thursday, Japan's Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said at a press conference that an agreement in principle had been reached to revive the treaty, although Canada's Commerce Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne, denied it later in a tweet saying "despite reports, there is no agreement in principle on TPP". He said that he was "very happy" and an announcement would be made on Friday. The pact's second-largest remaining economy, Canada, is pushing to beef up what it calls "progressive" elements of the deal while maintaining market access, warning that could take some time.

"The deputy chair that was leading the negotiations yesterday was from Japan, and we understand it's been bumped up to the Japanese leader to deal with other leaders". Similar concerns in Europe nearly scuttled the Canada-EU trade deal, which recently took provisional effect.

"The meeting did not happen, work remains to be done and that's what's happening now", a Canadian official said. While no agreement is likely to be reached in the talks, those supporting free trade hope that the successful conclusion of TPP talks will pressure the less enthusiastic members of RCEP to accept implementing higher standards in the 16-country trade deal. He told business leaders November 6 that TPP was "not the right idea" and he envisioned easing trade restrictions in another way, outside the TPP framework, without going into detail.

"Vietnam and Japan would be the two biggies for Canada in terms of diversifying trade", said Ciuriak, who is now the director of Ciuriak Consulting Inc. It is seeking to maintain market access components while strengthening elements such as environment and labor provisions and adding others to reach a "better deal".

Some countries remained cautious.

The host suggested that Canada recognise Vietnam as a market economy soon, further open its market further to Vietnamese goods and provide more support for the Vietnamese community.

As ministers left a first meeting on Thursday, they said more discussions were needed. Motegi said the list of suspensions is "very limited". This is a global age, and Asia is the center of growth.
