Negotiations for the free trade agreement (FTA) between China and Panama move into a third meeting, this time in the Panamanian capital from Tuesday, October 9 to Saturday, October 13.

Japan will welcome Britain to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal "with open arms," ​​said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Abe went on to say that the United Kingdom would lose its role as the gateway to Europe after Brexit, but that it would remain a "globally strong" country. He argues in favor of a compromise to avoid a no-deal Brexit scenario.

His comments are encouraging to supporters of Brexit in the United Kingdom who see new opportunities for free trade outside the European Union and wish to increase the pressure on Brussels and London to reach an exit agreement.
