Abstract:

The economic and strategic architectures of Asia are evolving. One part of this evolving architecture is the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement TPP, a free trade agreement that includes nations on both sides of the Pacific. The TPP, which originally came into effect in 2006, currently includes Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore. The United States, Australia, Peru, and Vietnam have also expressed interest in joining. On November 14, 2009, President Obama committed to engage with current and potential future members of the TPP to shape a broad-based regional agreement.
