Extract from “Pacific Trade Pact Set to Give Big Boost to Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia”

If the Pacific agreement is enacted, Vietnam would get the biggest percentage boost to its economy—about 10% by 2030—as its textiles and apparel industry gets new preferential access to the U.S. and other major markets. Japan would see extra economic growth of 2.7% by 2030 while the U.S. could expect additional economic growth of 0.4% by 2030, according to the study, released by the World Bank.

Malaysia’s economy would swell by 8% as its exporters acquire an advantage over regional competitors that aren’t part of the bloc, including Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia.
