Yomiuri reported that negotiators from 16 nations in the Asia-Pacific region assembled in Tokyo yesterday for five days of discussions on the proposed establishment of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). In the session, co-chaired by Japan and Singapore, the participants are expected to narrow their differences on such issues as reducing import tariffs and regulating electronic commerce. The daily projected that if an accord on the RCEP initiative is reached, it will serve as a deterrent to protectionism.
