New Zealand and 10 other nations have settled their differences and are set to sign a new version of the trans-Pacific partnership (TPP) trade pact in March.
NZ First has pledged to back the deal, also supported by National and Labour.
It’s good for NZ that a final deal has been agreed to, and that NZ First will support it.
It is a pity that Labour and NZ First spent so much time and energy denouncing it in opposition to embrace it in Government. The changes to the original TPP are mainly as a result of the US pulling out. There has been no significant change to it apart from those consequential on the US.
