Hong Kong hopes to join RCEP trade deal: finance chief

15 countries have recently signed the largest regional free-trade agreement.

Hong Kong strives to be one of the first economies to join the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) trade agreement once it takes effect, according to a blog post by Finance secretary Paul Chan.

Chan wrote that the total bilateral trade between Hong Kong and the 15 RCEP member states accounts for 71% of Hong Kong’s total trade in goods.

Asia Pacific nations, including China, have signed the largest regional free-trade agreement, which covers about a third of the world’s population and gross domestic product.
