New Zealand trade envoy: TPP chances best if changes few

New Zealand trade envoy: TPP chances best if changes few

HANOI, Vietnam _ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau insists he will not be pressed into signing an updated Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty too hastily, even if some of Canada's partners are keen to secure a quick agreement. However, Francois-Philippe Champagne, Canada's trade minister, turned to social media to declare that an agreement had yet to be concluded. 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. "That means there will be some aspects of it where we will agree to suspend the operation of certain parts of it, and that's been the basis upon which we've been able to get now, I hope, an agreement".

Ministerial talks on a communique for the APEC leaders were extended into a second day on Thursday in the face of USA demands for changes to the language used concerning issues such as free trade and protectionism, officials at the talks said.

Mr Ciobo said an agreement had been reached between all 11 trade ministers on Thursday night.

In a separate panel discussion at the APEC summit on Friday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said he was "reasonably confident" a deal could be reached without the United States.

"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". Mexico and Canada, however, are in the midst of talks to keep Trump from walking away from another deal - the North American Free Trade Agreement, for which the TPP was a de facto modernization.

Peru meanwhile is more focused on talks toward a trade-and-investment agreement between a smaller group of countries than trying to save the TPP without the USA, a Peruvian official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. 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.

So, for example, if you're running a country that's not getting along great with another country - to the point where a state visit would be awkward and unlikely - significant progress can be made in brief meetings at a regional summit. 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".

Because the USA secured numerous concessions during its negotiations, the remaining countries were left to hash out which terms from the original pact to suspend now that Washington has left the table.

Vietnam, projected to see economic growth this year of 6.3 per cent, features a sturdy consumer base, an emerging business class and an expanding footprint in supply chains.

"I think we just have to have irons in many fires".
