The world of international trade is changing faster and stronger than rarely before in modern history. After failed multilateral attempts by the WTO, nations are now banding together in great mega-regional free trading blocks.

Our new GED Study Series “How do Mega-Regional Trade Agreements Affect Emerging Markets” sheds light on the effects such pervasive changes in the global trading game will have on various regions around the world.

Part two of this three-part series analyzes the effects of TPP, FTAAP and RCEP on 20 Asian economies and argues that Asia could be a major player in forging the rules for international trade in the 21st century.
