The chief negotiators of 11 Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) countries plan to meet in Hakone, the Japanese prefecture of Kanagawa, in mid-July to discuss the future of the free trade deal without the United States, Japanese news agency Kyodo reported.
Vietnam should be ready to negotiate a free trade agreement with the US, according to some speakers at a recent seminar on the impacts of the Trump administration’s policies in Asia-Pacific.
Member states of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) committed to seeking a new path to promote regional economic and trade integration during a high-level meeting in the Chilean city of Vina del Mar on March 15.
The 11 remaining countries of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) could decide to push ahead with the ratification of the agreement hoping that the US will change its mind and rejoin the deal, a Singaporean official has said.
Singapore will continue participating in other free trade initiatives, despite the US withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, said a spokesman of the Singaporean Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT) on January 24.

This common understanding reflects the strategic vision of our leaders resulting in political will needed for our two countries to overcome many obstacles, both internally and externally, to become friends and comprehensive partners like we are today.”
Our shared interests keep expanding as our cooperation and friendship grow at bilateral, regional and global levels. Today, we both have interests in maintaining peace, security and prosperity in the region. This also covers safety and security of navigation and overflight, law enforcement at sea, maritime environmental protection and dispute resolution through peaceful means on the basis of international law without the use or threat of force.
