Negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are ongoing. TPP has the potential to be an important part of the global free trade system, alongside agreements that the UK will be party to, such as the EU-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and the EU-Japan FTA. We are following TPP’s progress closely and discuss it regularly with those countries involved. We will undertake a fuller assessment of its implications once the detail of the deal becomes clear.
