Abstract:

The vacuum left by stalled global trade negotiations is being filled by two tracks of negotiations in the Asia Pacific: an Asian track centered on ASEAN and the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement supported by the United States. Both tracks could simplify the “noodle bowl” of current smaller agreements in the Asia Pacific and possibly lead to a region-wide free trade area, generating income gains of $2 trillion per year. The tracks should produce significant benefits, but could also, at least initially, intensify competition between China and the United State
