Text of the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement released


Following the withdrawal of the United States in early 2017, a new agreement was reached between Australia and 10 other Pacific Nations in late January 2018. The new agreement has been named the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). 


The CPTPP incorporates the provisions of the original Trans-Pacific Partnership as signed in 2016. Without the US as a signatory, however, it has suspended or amended a number of provisions.


This article explores those provisions.
