Last quote by Kotaro Tamura

Japan's prime minister and government paid a tremendous amount of political capital to make [the TPP] happen. They won't waste it. Of course they were pretending to talk about a free trade agreement (FTA), but bottom in the heart, they will be welcoming the U.S. back. It's not about FTA. It's buying time, but in reality, they are looking for the U.S. coming back to the pact. They seem very confident. Otherwise, Japan would not do something like that without the U.S. moving ahead with other 10 membership countries.feedback
