Australia “won’t walk away” from free trade despite TPP blow: government

CANBERRA, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) — Australia will work with the remaining Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) nations and look to other nations to salvage what it can of the doomed free trade agreement after U.S. President Donald Trump’s overnight decision to withdraw from the deal, Trade Minister Steve Ciobo said.

Following Trump’s decision to axe America’s involvement, effectively leaving the deal in its current form ‘dead in the water’, Ciobo has already said other nations which were a part of the original deal had opened up discussion lines about a potential replacement, as the Trump decision was “not unexpected”.

“We are not going to walk away from pursuing high quality trade deals that are good for Australian exports,” Ciobo told Sky News on Tuesday.

He said there was a possibility that a “TPP 12 minus one” deal, which would involve the remaining 11 signatories, could get off the ground as the Australian government had been in close contact with representatives from the original TPP nations.

“A number of us had a conversation about a possible ‘TPP 12 minus one’ in other words, the Trans-Pacific Partnership minus the United States in order to keep hold of the gains we’ve been able to agree (upon),” Ciobo told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Monday.

“I’ve had conversations with Canada, Japan, Mexico, with New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia. I know there have been conversations with Chie and Peru.

“There are quite a number of countries that have an interest in looking to see if we could make a ‘TPP 12 minus one’.”

The Trade Minister also hinted at the possibility of introducing a new, or multiple new nations, into the agreement; he told the ABC there has been interest from Indonesia, while China may also be approached.

“The original architecture was to enable other countries to join,” Ciobo said.

“Certainly I know that Indonesia has expressed a possible interest. And there would be scope for China if we’re able to reformulate it to be a ‘TPP 12 minus one’ for countries like Indonesia or China – or indeed other countries – to consider joining.”

However, he said, it may be some time before formal discussions about the matter take place, considering Trump was also keen to “renegotiate” the existing North American Free Trade Agreement.

“President Trump has indicated he wants to renegotiate elements of the North American FTA, and that would have an impact on Canada and Mexico, which in turn would have an impact on the kind of deal we could reach under the ’12 minus one’,” Ciobo said.

Despite the optimism from the government on the matter, the federal opposition has urged the government to “move on” from the doomed multilateral trade deal; opposition spokesperson Jason Clare said

“This executive order means the TPP is now officially dead,” Clare said. “(Prime Minister) Malcolm Turnbull’s credibility is not in much better shape.”

“Last week he announced that his big economic plan for the year was to introduce legislation to implement the TPP. Donald Trump’s executive order today means Malcolm Turnbull’s big economic plan is also dead. It would have no effect at all.

“It’s time for Malcolm Turnbull to wake up and move on, and develop a real economic plan for Australia.”

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) or Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) is a trade agreement among eleven of the Pacific Rim countries—notably not including China. The finalized proposal was signed on 4 February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, concluding seven years of negotiations.

(The former Obama administration claimed that the agreement aimed to “promote economic growth; support the creation and retention of jobs; enhance innovation, productivity and competitiveness; raise living standards; reduce poverty in the signatories’ countries; and promote transparency, good governance, and enhanced labor and environmental protections.)

” The TPP contains measures to lower both non-tariff and tariff barriers to trade and establish an investor -state dispute settlement or investment court system is a system through which individual companies can sue countries for alleged discriminatory practices.”

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Opinion: Corrupt power is power corrupted?

Is stealing work time a crime? Surely it is!

Ethicist said, “just to think about to do it, if you were charged with official duty and public trust, it’s already unethical and a theft.“

Steal and exploitation or intent to cheat is a sin in the Buddhist thinking. Moreover under the law, it is criminal and immoral to infringe on governmental oath and codes of ethics.

But in Cambodia, no one dared to think or speak up about such societal problems. There seemed to be no body business to be concerned about the officials’ unbecoming conducts and abuses of power. The gossips go on viral that the governmental high officials and notable elitists in the ministerial ranks have chatted away and have flirted online with young but married women; especially, the chatter boxes on Facebook and Skype during work hours?

Presently on the social media pages and networks there is no mechanism or codes to stop people from surfing internet and stay on line indefinitely.

No one paid attention to Cambodian toothless laws or individual sense of responsibility. Usually they are poor in morality and ethical value and esteem in self censorship and governmental accountability.

So they say, in Cambodia, the most corrupted people are the ones hold too much power in government.

The questions go:

 

Will this be egregious enough for the proper Anti Corruption Unit attention to prosecute and investigate such behaviors?

Is Cambodian government full of these flawed characters and so what will the government do to curb this?

Are they the public servants or the philandering beasts in disguises under the governmental seals to seek and to satisfy own sexual appetites online?

Are these mischievous and lascivious activities, at the public expenses from the foreign donation and taxation, criminal acts?

Are the allegations true and substantial?

Is this part of their daily activities at work and on the official clock?

Now, I am wondering if you ,yes you the ministers, have done that too ?
