McClay: There is life still in the TPP

From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 16 March 2017

Could there be life in the Trans Pacific Partnership with the US?

In January, US President Donald trump pulled out of the 12 member trade deal, effectively halting the agreement.

Now, Trade Minister Todd McClay is in Chile discussing the possibility of a new trade pact.

He told Morning Report that while it's too early to say a deal will go ahead, equally it's too early to say it's dead in the water.
