SCC comment on the UK’s accession to the CPTPP

Reacting to news of an agreement on the UK’s accession to The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Dr Liz Cameron CBE, Chief Executive, Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“The UK joining a trading bloc which now accounts for 15% of global GDP is welcome news for firms looking to expand across the world.

“It opens exciting new opportunities for Scottish businesses with regards to investment and trade, with many of the economies in the CPTPP already being key target countries for growth, with the potential of other countries joining in the future.

“We look forward to quick ratification of the agreement and then working with the UK Government, and others, to ensure Scottish firms get the best possible access to this thriving partnership of nations within the global economy.”
