Please visit the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website for full information on the CPTPP. The Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (PPCPC) agreement is a free trade agreement between Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam. The CPTPP was signed on March 8, 2018 in Chile and came into force on December 30, 2018: on this site, you will find a lot of information about commercial activities in the CPTPP markets. Please see “Country Profiles”: it is important for Australia that the CPTPP package, which is guaranteed in the original CPTPP, be maintained (i.e. for the opening of the goods and services market and obligations relating to foreign investment rules). This market access package is implemented by CPTPP contracting parties and offers great opportunities for Australian exporters, investors and companies operating internationally. The result maintains the ambitious scope and high quality standards and rules of the original CPTPP. The CPTPP recognizes the challenges faced by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in creating export markets and contains results that help facilitate this task in the CPTPP region. For more information, please refer to this agreement, which contains the provisions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (signed but not yet in force), with the exception of a limited series of provisions to be suspended. The 11 countries have a common vision of the agreement as a platform open to others to join them if they are able to meet their high standards. The CPTP will enter into force for Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia and Peru 60 days after the completion of their respective ratification procedures.
