While the U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in January 2017 marked a step back from its role as a champion of regional trade agreements in the Asia-Pacific, other nations in the region have since taken up the mantle. From the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)–the successor to the TPP, which will go into effect on December 30th–to negotiations to conclude the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) by 2019, the future of trade in the Asia-Pacific is increasingly being shaped by Asians.
