The CPTPP and UK’s accession: What global implications?

The UK is the first State which formally applied to join the CPTPP. Its bid was accepted in early June 2021.

The UK’s accession to the deal would potentially be a major game changer, turning the CPTPP into a like-minded middle-power club that promotes liberal economic norms. As this year’s chair of the CPTPP commission, Japan is likely to be a key player in the negotiation. The implications of the UK’s accession will be wide-ranging for the CPTPP nations (and in particular for Japan), for the UK, for the EU and for the global trading system as a whole. This webinar will gather experts to compare notes on the UK’s accession to the CPTPP and its various implications.
