Why was RCEP formed?

Backed by China, RCEP was envisaged as a way to bolster trading ties among nations across Asia-Pacific and promote trade and economic growth in the region.

RCEP was launched in November 2012 as an ASEAN (external link) initiative. RCEP countries agreed to deliver an agreement that is modern, comprehensive, high-quality and mutually beneficial. Leaders endorsed these Guiding Principles and Objectives ('Guiding Principles') for the RCEP negotiations when launched.

The first round of RCEP negotiation was held on 9–13 May 2013 in Brunei.

The Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Brunei, and trading partners China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand have signed the RCEP in 2020. The RCEP was first introduced in November 2011 during the 19th Asean Summit in Bali, Indonesia.
