(December 21, 2021) Lauding RCEP: free trade for (almost) all

When the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) comes into force on Jan 1, its member countries can look back with satisfaction at their accomplishments that required more than hard bargaining and negotiations with all kinds of specific instructions from the bosses. Over time those men and women became a family. When they met, they laughed and cajoled, knowing full well what would happen after each session.

However, there was an earth shattering development in early 2017 when the US pulled out of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) that unexpectedly accelerated the RCEP members to wrap matters up as soon as possible to maintain free-trade momentum. It was a crisis that transformed into a golden opportunity for the so-called Asean plus six to show their magnanimity.
