Japan PM: CPTPP trade pact does not enable unfair trade practices
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Friday the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), a regional trade pact, does not enable the existence of unfair trade practices or economic coercion, the Japanese government said.
Kishida made the comment to Pacific-rim leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) online summit meeting.
Two of the participating economies, China and Taiwan, are aiming to join the CPTPP.
