[Session 1] Economic Cooperation

  1. What is the prospect of TPP conclusion? Are RCEP and TPP compatible with or even complementary to each other? What can CJK do to lead these two trade blocs to contribute to building an East Asian economic community?
  2. How can CJK enhance their domestic structural reform to ensure the sustainable economic growth, considering the CJK FTA to be pushed forward?
  3. How can CJK contribute to the sustainability of the economic growth in East Asia? There are many constraints caused by such factors as insufficient infrastructure investment and insufficient protection of intellectual property rights, energy and environment on achieving the sustainable economic growth in East Asia. Is it possible for CJK to coordinate in overcoming those constraints?
