The TTP Trade Agreement came into force in 2016 after 7 years of negotiations. Originally, the USA and Canada also participated. Shortly after US President Donald Trump took office, the USA cancelled its participation at the beginning of 2017. In November 2017, the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also announced his withdrawal from the agreement. Instead, a replacing trade agreement CPTPP ("Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership") was continued without the USA, but with Canada.

The aim of the agreement is to reduce tariffs, particularly in the areas of agriculture, vehicle construction and clothing. In addition, trade regulations are to be simplified and intellectual property rights extended.

Talks are currently being held with numerous other countries that could join the alliance. These include large economies such as India, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and South Korea.
