Pacific trade deal reached but leaders won't endorse it yet

Jacinda Ardern meets Indian prime minister Narendra Modi at APEC

Canada's position has been further complicated by the fact that it is simultaneously renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement with the Trump administration.

But more work needed to be done before leaders of the countries involved can endorse the plan, Mr Anh and his Japanese counterpart, Toshimitsu Motegi, said.

Instead they found Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, holding crisis meetings with Canada's Justin Trudeau over an undisclosed issue.

Canada has been a "dialogue partner" of the peace and security group for 40 years, but Trudeau said he has no plans for have a formal bilateral meeting with the Filipino leader.

Canada, which has the second biggest economy among remaining TPP countries after Japan, had said it wanted to ensure an agreement that would protect jobs.

"The substance is something all the TPP countries can agree on", said Motegi.

"We have confirmed there was no mistake about us having reached a basic agreement", Motegi said.

Negotiations have been revived on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has floundered since the U.S. rejected the deal in January.

"But we can't control the decisions of other countries".

"We were not ready to close the TPP 11 yesterday", he said. They also changed the trade accord's name to the unwieldy Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, or CPTPP.

"It is true that Canada did not attend that meeting and those talks have now been postponed".

Increasingly, APEC summits have become more of an opportunity for such side talks, and for host nations to showcase their growing affluence.

In a speech hours before at the summit, President Trump emphasized his hard line on multilateral trade deals, declaring that the U.S. would not be "taken advantage of anymore." the which has informed his threats to pull out of NAFTA.

APEC operates by consensus and customarily issues nonbinding statements.

"We're in an easier place to try things out, to test policy sensitivities even if we don't get everybody around the table", Bollard said. It also contained measures addressing climate change.

Talks - often heated - have been held on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in the Vietnamese resort of Danang, where Trump and other leaders held their main meeting on Saturday.

A news conference was scheduled for later Saturday morning Vietnam time. Danang, Vietnam's third-largest city, is in the midst of a construction boom as dozens of resorts and smaller hotels pop up along its scenic coastline.
