TOKYO: Malaysia will “wait and see” before making any further decision on the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement following concerns that the initiative will not come into force with the election of Donald Trump as US President.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak hoped that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe could convince Trump that the TPP would not only benefit the 11 countries, but also the US.
Abe is due to meet Trump in New York Thursday, the first world leader to do so.
TPP countries believed that the agreement would encourage free trade and open up markets for the participating nations.
Malaysia had to work with the new president to strengthen good relations with the United States.
