TPP Trade Deal Members Seek To Move Ahead Without U.S.

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 2017
Remaining members of the Trans Pacific Partnership, more commonly called the TPP, free trade agreement are working on a statement to reaffirm their commitment to it, despite the withdrawal of the United States. Some still hope for the eventual return of the United States to the deal ditched by U.S. President Donald Trump because of his readiness to shift position on other issues. Talks are happening on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting, the biggest trade gathering since Trump upended the world order with his "America First" policy. Sources close to the discussions said the so-called TPP-11 nations - the 11 left after the United States withdrew - were planning a statement of commitment to the pact. The agreement is due to take effect next year.
