Following Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, global trade leadership is now shifting to Asia. 

Talks on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), a mega trade deal linking 16 countries across Asia1, are accelerating in 2017. The 18th RCEP round will be held on 26 February in Japan. Over a dozen chapters cover market access for goods, services, investment, competition, intellectual property, e-commerce, financial services, telecommunications, and customs. 

RCEP is frequently mentioned in the news, but information about the agreement is scarce and misconceptions abound. This virtual panel includes experts on the ground who can help you understand the true status and implications of the agreement
