Someone has woken up, at least partially . . .

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

Probably no TPP unless US congress approves of deal..If that happens, US will lose control of world's GDP of 45% for the Asian economy to PRC.. US already lost all its allies in the Chinese led world bank foundation..Only the US and Japan hasn't joined the Chinese initiated bank. Even GB,France,Germany, ( Germany that the US spends so much ) then now AU,then even the closest of them all, the Canadian has joined the China's AIIB..

Yea, think it is time for Global trade embargo on the United States until they get the message.

You don't see this slimball special interest crap attached to other trade agreements. Only the one's involving the United States. There might be industry specific issues dealt with, but ones with the United States I am suprised they don't have a copyright attached to the text based on the company that wrote it ("copyright 2016, Microsoft, subparagraph 3").

When is Chile to ratify the new TPP 11? The new treaty should commence in De 30 of this month. Pinera in accord with its trans pacific partnership, without the US? Now GB soon to be outside of EU common market, wanting to join TPP 11 in a hurry...

TPP-11 trade pact set to kick in: Tariff cuts start on Dec. 30
Posted on 2018-11-05 by The Japan Agricultural News
TOKYO, Nov. 1 ― The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) without the United States, also known as TPP-11, will come into force on Dec. 30 this year as Australia has become the sixth country to ratify the agreement, joining Japan, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and Singapore.
The entry into force “will send a strong message that the new trade rules of the 21th century, which area freer and fair, will be established and will spread to the world,” Japan’s Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said at an Oct. 31 press conference.
Australia’s ratification came within a day of the November 1 deadline. It was crucial because the TPP-11 agreement takes effect 60 days after six countries ratify the deal, and it cuts tariffs at the start of each fiscal year for Japan.
That means a first round of tariff reductions is triggered initially on Dec. 30, 2018 and secondly on April 1, 2019.
The TPP-11 is one of the most comprehensive trade agreements that will open Japan’s recent history.
For instance, Japan imposes a 38.5 percent of tariff on beef imports. In the first year of the agreement, the tariff would drop to 27.5 percent and eventually sink to only nine percent.
The same thing goes with another sensitive product: pork.
Japan uses a “gate price” system for importing pork. That provides an incentive to import higher-value pork and taxes lower-value pork, thus protecting the domestic industry from import competition.
Although the gate price system for pork is not eliminated under the TPP-11, the ad valorem duty will be removed and the maximum price for product entering below the gate price will be phased down from the current 482 yen per kilogram to 50 yen per kilogram over 10 years.
Once the trade agreement takes effect, a TPP committee that consists of the first group of six members will hold a ministerial meeting in Japan in January to discuss the procedures of accession for new members.
So far, South Korea, Thailand as well as Colombia and the United Kingdom have shown “strong interest” in joining the TPP-11.
