Yomiuri front-paged a report saying that Thailand is making arrangements to join the new TPP accord agreed upon by 11 nations, including Japan and Australia, after it goes into effect by the end of this year or later. Noting that Thailand will be the first nation to participate in the new TPP agreement other than the original 11 members, the paper speculated that this may give momentum to the expansion of the group’s membership. Economic Revitalization Minister Motegi, who is in charge of the TPP, plans to visit Thailand to discuss the matter during the Golden Week holidays starting at the end of this month.
