Malaysia Has Ratified the CPTPP - What Happens Now?

On 30 September, Malaysia officially ratified the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) making us the 9th country to ratify this free trade agreement. But the CPTPP has remained a point of contention, as some say that it will benefit Malaysia’s economy, while others argue that it will cost us in the long-run, requiring changes in laws, guidelines and directives. So what could happen next, now that we’ve ratified the CPTPP? We find out from Chee Yoke Ling, Executive Director of Third World Network.
