DANANG (Vietnam): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today said more work needed to be done on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact that 11 countries agreed to pursue without the United States.

Earlier in the day, the TPP countries agreed on the core elements to move ahead with the trade pact, after last-minute resistance from Canada raised new doubts about its survival.

Speaking to reporters on TPP, Trudeau said “still more important work to be done to ensure we reach the best deal for Canada and Canadian people.”

He also said talks on North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) with the United States were not affecting its stance on TPP negotiations.
