MP: Irresponsible to proceed with TPPA without US

Published:  |  Modified:

It is "irrational and irresponsible" to proceed with the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement instead of negotiating better deals through bilateral agreements with participating nations, said PKR MP William Leong.

The government yesterday said it would proceed with the TPPA despite US President Donald Trump's executive order to remove the US from the pact.

“It would be far better for Malaysia to negotiate bilateral free trade agreements with the remaining countries that serves the economic interests of Malaysians,” the Selayang MP said in a statement.
