Local press here in Oz report that there will be a meeting in Melbourne today of all 10 ASEAN member states (along with others).

  • China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and India, will be in negotiations over an EU-style trade deal known as the pan-Asian Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership [RCEP]

16 nations in total

  • RCEP would encompass 30 per cent of global gross domestic product, 3.5 billion people and eclipse the TPP-11


Dunno that this is a secret, but there you go.
