IEA International Trade and Competition Fellow Shanker Singham has written in The Daily Express welcoming the UK’s membership of the CPTPP.

Shanker wrote:

“Global Britain has become a reality.

“For the first time, a major G7 country has chosen to accede to a regional grouping – not because it is part of that region, but rather because the agreement represents liberal values and provides economic opportunities.

“CPTPP is a deeply liberalising agreement, based on mutual recognition, equivalence and adequacy.

“The agreement is becoming an alternative to the World Trade Organisation by emphasising regulatory competition and recognition. CPTPP + UK is an equivalent economic power to the EU-28-UK.”
