The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), also known as TPP11 or TPP-11, is a trade agreement between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. It was developed from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which never came into effect due to the withdrawal of the United States. At the time of its signature, the combined economies of the eleven countries accounted for 13.4% of the world`s gross domestic product (about $13.5 trillion), making the CPTPP the third largest free trade area in the world in terms of GDP, after the agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada, the European single market and possibly after the regional comprehensive economic partnership signed in 2020. In January 2018, the UK government said it was reviewing membership of the CPTPP in order to boost exports after Brexit and had informal discussions with several members.  The country has an overseas territory, the Pitcairn Islands, in the Pacific Ocean.  In October 2018, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he would like the UK to join the partnership after Brexit.  In a joint Telegraph article with Simon Birmingham, David Parker and Chan Chun Sing, trade ministers of Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, BRITISH Trade Minister Liz Truss expressed the UK`s intention to join the CPTPP.  The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) is a free trade agreement between Canada and 10 other countries in the Asia-Pacific region: Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. Once fully implemented, the 11 countries will form a trading bloc representing 495 million consumers and 13.5% of global GDP and providing Canada with privileged access to key markets in Asia and Latin America. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade commissioned the experienced international trade modeller ImpactEcon to assess the economic impact of CPTPP on New Zealand. ImpactEcon estimates that once the CPTPP is fully implemented, New Zealand`s annual GDP would be between $1.2 billion and $4.0 billion more than it would have been if there had been no agreement.
On January 1, 2018, US President Donald Trump announced in an interview his interest in a possible re-entry into the TPP if it was a “much better deal” for the United States. It withdrew the United States from the original agreement in January 2017.  On April 12, 2018, he asked white House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to review adherence to the new agreement.  Usa Vince Peterson, president of Wheat Associates, said in December 2018 that U.S. wheat exporters could face an “imminent collapse” in their 53% market share in Japan due to the CPTPP. . . .
