LocationWellington,  New Zealand
Typeinternational
DescriptionA secret agreement which abrogates several aspects of national sovereignty in the name of "free trade". The US withdrew in January 2017.

Official narrative

The May 2015 Wikipedia page for the TPP announces: "Signed: 18 July 2005", beneath an image of 10 "leaders of TPP member states and prospective member states at a TPP summit in 2010".[1]

Problems

As of May 2015, the text was still being negotiated (in secret) and is subject to considerable worldwide protest. Wikipedia's "signed" date refers only to the "Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement", a much more limited agreement effective only in Brunei, Chile, Singapore and New Zealand.

US Withdrawal

US President Donald Trump fulfilled a campaign pledge by announcing the withdrawal of US from TPP in January 2017.[2]
