Evidence

Published 29 January 2024

Dr Minako Morita-Jaeger provides oral evidence to the House of Commons Business and Trade Committee on the UK’s accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. She answers questions about the basic principles of UK trade policy and the geopolitical gain for the UK in this deal stating that: The gain is the diplomatically enhanced tie with all the CPTPP countries. However, when it comes to economic benefit, this is very modest. We cannot predict certainty but the losers are likely to be the agricultural sector and semi-processed agricultural food.
