Article by Professor Julien Chaisse on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership


The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership was concluded in November 2019. In this article, Professor Julien Chaisse (Associate Member of the Centre for Chinese and Comparative Law) explains that many commitments will be made in the texts, so the final agreement should be viewed as a framework rather than the last word on the topic. Like ASEAN+1 FTAs, RCEP will include a built-in agenda.
