Trans-Pacific Partnership talks resume next week in Canada

Twelve country officials involved in the US-led Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations plan to meet in Ottawa from July 3 to 12 to iron out outstanding issues like tariffs and intellectual property rights.

The 12 countries, including Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the U.S. and Vietnam, initially sought to meet in Vancouver, but the venue has been changed, reports The Japan Times.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the ministers met in Singapore last month as the U.S. and Japan pushed to reinvigorate a process stalled by their bilateral differences, particularly in the contentious areas of access to the agriculture and automobiles markets.
