Trans-Pacific trade pact revived despite Trump withdrawal

Leading Pacific Rim nations have announced the salvaging of a trade pact that US president Donald Trump abandoned in one of his first acts in office. The remaining 11 countries, including Japan, Australia, Mexico and Malaysia, said they had revived the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal, a multilateral agreement championed under the Obama administration. Ministers meeting in Danang, Vietnam agreed on the “core elements” of what was now called the comprehensive and progressive agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, a joint statement read.
