06 Nov 2015 / 05:39 H.

    KUALA LUMPUR: The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) can be amended with the agreement of all parties involved.
    The final text of the agreement released yesterday said amendments can be made after each party completes its applicable legal procedures and notifies, in writing, a depositary which is responsible for receiving and disseminating documents.
    The text also said the TPP is open to accession by members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum and other states or separate Customs territories after completing applicable legal procedures in each party.
    Any party intending to withdraw from the agreement can do so by providing written notice of withdrawal to the depositary and simultaneously notify the other parties of its withdrawal through the contact points. – Bernama
