Report: Think tank says CPTPP still has high IP standards

Washington D.C. 12 March 2018 - According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) could provide ‘the most advanced and detailed standards on intellectual property in a trade agreement to-date’. This statement comes despite revisions to the Free Trade Agreement’s IP chapter after the United States dropped out of the deal.

The CPTPP agreement is being negotiated by 11 Asia-Pacific economies: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.
