The New Faces of Transpacific Trade 2018

In 2016, the Global Innovation Forum released a report profiling entrepreneurs from across the 12 countries engaged in negotiations towards a Transpacific Partnership Agreement. While an agreement was signed in 2016, the United States announced it would withdraw from the pact in January 2017. The remaining 11 countries – Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam – renegotiated parts of the deal and agreed to move forward with a new “Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.” GIF is re-releasing the report to highlight the innovation among businesses poised to benefit from the CPTPP and the positive impact that could accrue to American entrepreneurs and innovators if they were able to take advantage of the agreement.
