Complex, overlapping trade rules in Asia increase firms’ costs and prevent them from using the region’s web of bilateral trade agreements.
Mega-regional deals under discussion—the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP)—would remove many such cross-border impediments, enabling multinational companies to build supply chains and production networks based on efficiencies rather than arbitrary rules.
In this report we look at a number of possible scenarios between now and 2020 depending on which deal is implemented. Taking the three most likely scenarios, we provide companies with a list of impacts on market potential and business operations, along with suggested actions to take.
