I'm not opposed to the negotiation of "fair trade" agreements; however, I am a strong opponent of TPP. My major problems with it were the spreading of US patent protection rights to the other signatory nations and the insidious 'Dispute Settlement' chapter which would have threatened the sovereignty of signatory nations. But, let's be clear, the cancellation of the TPP makes China the big winner.

Yep, Trump just abandoned the TPP but wasn't even started so no one could gotten out of any still formed trade partnership?
AU's Turnbull wants to bring the PRC into forming a new TPP agenda, what a fiasco!

NZ too is keen to carry on without the US, all other TPP members are meeting here in Chile in a few months. Japan originally said it was pointless without the US but now have decided it's worth pursuing without them. China, Russians, Japan etc all keen to fill the vacuum created by US in political and trade matters now, make America great again? More like make America irrelevant on the world stage.

Chile: My expectations are low. Very low.
I accept chaos. I'm not sure whether it accepts me.

It is not clear if that is going to be signed by the Bachelet administration or Pinera. Pinera was totally opposed to the TPP when it started, mostly because it was either redundant (Chile has bi-lateral trade agreements pretty much with all those countries already).

Meanwhile, Bachelet and company like's to sign unpopular agreements at the 11th hour of her administration (e.g. FATCA, SQM settlement, etc).

You mean the tax information exchange agreement posing as a double taxation treaty. FATCA, there was no choice in the matter.

Chile-USA tax treaty approved by Chile legislature but never approved by the US Senate:
...7 years later, the Tax Treaty has not yet entered into force – while it was approved by the Chilean Congress in 2015, it has not been ratified by the U.S. Senate. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved the Tax Treaty in both 2011 and 2015, but Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has placed a hold on the Tax Treaty, along with tax treaties with 7 other countries, due to concerns that the exchange of information provisions infringe on personal privacy, blocking their consideration by the full chamber. To date, no compromise has been reached, and the future of the Tax Treaty remains uncertain, particularly under the current administration.

Thank you Rand Paul!
