After the newly elected US President, Donald Trump, withdrew the US signature of the TPP in January 2017[5], the agreement could not be ratified as requested and did not enter into force. The other countries negotiated a new trade agreement called the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, which contains most of the provisions of the TPP and entered into force on December 30, 2018. During his tenure, Obama repeatedly stressed the need to complete the TPP, saying, “We cannot allow countries like China to write the rules of the global economy. We should write these rules. After taking office in 2009, Obama continued the talks. In 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton formulated the TPP as the centerpiece of the U.S. strategic direction toward the Asia-Pacific region. After nineteen formal rounds of negotiations and many other separate meetings, the participating countries agreed in October 2015 and signed the pact in early 2016. “This is another wake-up call for the United States,” said Wendy Cutler, vice president of the Asia Society Policy Institute and a longtime U.S. trade representative who helped negotiate the TPP. .
