Yomiuri and Nikkei took up a Financial Times report claiming that the British government is mulling the idea of taking part in the TPP-11 after its departure from the EU is finalized, speculating that London is anxious to mitigate Brexit’s adverse effects on its economy by ensuring access to the Asia-Pacific market. British officials are reportedly ready to hold talks with New Zealand and Australia within several months. Yomiuri expressed doubt about whether the current 11 members will embrace the participation of a state that is geographically removed from the Asia-Pacific.
