The Asia-Pacific Free Trade Agreement (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Transpacific Partnership), originally called the Transpacific Economic Cooperation Agreement (TPP), aims to strengthen trade relations between the two regions by facilitating access to markets, movement of labor, and government procurement contracts.
Fifteen countries have signed this agreement: Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
With this agreement comes a new initiative aimed at global trade: the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. Coming into force on January 1, 2022, this partnership will become the largest trade bloc in the world by economic size, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
