How Should China Deal with TPP?

Study Times, the publication of the Party School of the Central Committee of the CCP, published an article on December 19, 2011, titled “How Should China Deal with TPP?” According to the article, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is incomplete without China’s accession. Currently, China has difficulty meeting certain TPP’ requirements, such as on government procurement, state-owned enterprises having a limited role in the national economy, an assurance of market-driven innovation, a high demand for labor, and environmental standards. However, TPP’s rules give China an opportunity to open up and promote reform. “Following the principle of seeking  what is most beneficial for China’s maximum interest, China should actively and steadily negotiate with TPP.”
