Countries wanting to join the TPP

The Herald reports:

Top of their agenda will be what happens to prospective new members over the next two years, before the deal is able to come into force.

Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand and Columbia are among those countries that have expressed some interest in joining.

Taiwan has also.

What are their GDPs?

  • Indonesia $890b
  • South Korea $1,410b
  • Thailand $404b
  • Columbia $380b
  • Taiwan $530b

So that’s another $3.6 trillion of GDP likely to join in the next few years.

Yet again Labour wants to walk away from that.
