After eight years of negotiation, 12 members of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) finally concluded the negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) in Atlanta, Georgia on 5 October 2015. It was signed on 4 February 2016 in New Zealand. Although President Donald Trump has announced the withdrawal of the US from the agreement, many rules of the TPP will still survive either directly (if the treaty enters into force for the remaining group of countries) or indirectly (when the TPP or any parts of its contents is adopted as a standard or benchmark to negotiate future trade pacts).
