Ministers and Senior Officials representing Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Viet Nam met in Singapore on 8 October 2022 on the occasion of the Sixth Meeting of the CPTPP Commission, hosted by Singapore. The opportunity to meet in person for the first time since the pandemic was greatly valued and enabled excellent discussions on a range of issues of importance to CPTPP members. We reviewed the progress made over the year on the implementation of the Agreement against the backdrop of COVID-19 economic recovery and welcomed the notable contribution of the Agreement to the global economy as well as the growing interest shown by several economies to accede to the CPTPP.
