UK explores both TPP and TPA with Japan

The UK is exploring entry into the Trans-Pacific Partnership as well as a free-trade agreement with Japan after it leaves the European Union at the end of March. The economic partnership agreement between Japan and the EU will take effect in February, allowing the UK to trade under that framework as long as it remains in the bloc. But Britain will fall outside the treaty's jurisdiction should a no-deal Brexit materialise, making a new trade pact necessary to maintain a smooth trading relationship with Japan.

London is open to both bilateral and multilateral deals like the 11-nation TPP, which recently went into force, to ensure that Japanese companies can stably enter the British market.
