Asia-Pacific nations poised to sign the world’s largest multi-lateral trade agreement, RCEP, in 2020


After six years of negotiations, more than a dozen countries in the Asia-Pacific are poised to sign the world’s largest trade agreement, known as the Regional Comprehensive Partnership (RCEP), in 2020.

This agreement would boost commerce among participating countries by lowering tariffs as well as standardizing customs rules and procedures. The RCEP will widen market access, especially for those countries that do not have existing many bilateral trade agreements in place.

Will India pay a price for its decision to stay out of the RCEP?
