International Economics Consulting Ltd is honoured to submit written evidence on UK’s Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) accession with a focus on trade and environment, a hot topic in today’s global context. The CPTPP is recognised for setting high standards for trade and sustainable development, including those on labour and environmental protection. With this ambitious scope, the CPTPP is expected to provide Parties with an opportunity to push forward innovative solutions to address the global environmental crisis. For the UK, this would be a positive step towards setting more binding commitments on environmental safeguards in comparison to its other trade agreements.
