On November 10, commencing from around 1:20 p.m. (3:20 p.m. Japan time) for approximately an hour, Mr. Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, had a Japan-Canada Summit Meeting with Mr. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada during his visit to Da Nang, Vietnam, to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Meeting. The two leaders exchanged views mainly focusing on the issue of TPP 11.
As for TPP 11, an agreement in principle has been made at a TPP ministerial meeting on the 9th; however Prime Minister Trudeau said at the summit meeting with Japan that Canada was not yet at the stage where it could confirm, at the leader’s level, the agreement reached among ministers. Consequently, the TPP leaders’ meeting was postponed.
(Note)The TPP ministerial meeting was rearranged in the evening of the 10th, and the TPP 11 ministers reconfirmed the agreement.
