Kuala Lumpur witness Significant Breakthrough for RCEP Negotiation KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 26 (Bernama) -- The just concluded 47th ASEAN Economic Ministers' (AEM) Meeting marks an important milestone for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) talks as participating economic ministers hammered out differences and reached consensus on modalities in goods. This latest development is thus paving the way for the next round of negotiation to be held in Busan, Korea, in October. Optimism is also high that the agreement could be sealed by end of 2015 or more likely 2016 due to some minor technical issues that needed to be resolved.
