Indonesia considers joining TPP-11
The Jakarta Post
Indonesia is considering plans to join the Trans-Paicific Partnership (TPP) without the United States, known as TPP-11.
The country will discuss the matter during the 32nd ASEAN Summit in Singapore on Wednesday, Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said.
He added that as Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore and Brunei had entered the trade pact, the remaining countries, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and the Philippines, could get input from them.
"We are studying the new TPP because without the US, it will be different. ASEAN countries will sit together and those four countries that are already in the TPP will brief the remaining six countries," Enggar said on Friday. (ahw)
