It was touch and go for the TPP over the weekend but the trade agreement survived talks with world leaders at the APEC summit in Vietnam over the weekend.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she’s pleased with the progress the government has made on the deal and claims it is now very different from the original TPP 12.
