Wednesday Night Fightback 6: CPTPP – a good deal for the UK?

Will joining the Asia-Pacific trade bloc benefit the UK?

By: Editor

In our sixth Wednesday Night Fightback, Michael Taylor and William Clouston discuss the UK’s recent accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

William and Michael ask whether the potential benefits justify the hype.
