Mega-FTAs used to play two roles in order to partially supplement the slow-moving World Trade Organization (WTO): promoting further liberalization and establishing new international rules. With the recent turmoil in the international trading regime due to the loosening policy discipline and the US-China confrontation, a couple of new roles have been added, i.e., reducing policy risks and forming a pro-trade middle-power coalition. How can we assess and effectively utilize the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) from such a perspective? This webinar will discuss the significance of the RCEP and the prospect for regional economic integration in ASEAN and East Asia.
