Australia ready to move forward on 'TPP 11': trade minister

Country would like to keep renegotiation to a minimum

SYDNEY -- Despite America's withdrawal, members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact are focused on reaching an agreement for the 11 remaining countries, Australian Trade Minister Steve Ciobo said.

Australia prefers the agreement stay as close as possible to the original treaty, he said. With an eye on reaching a consensus later this year, Australia will host a meeting of chief negotiators this month to keep the reworked agreement moving forward.
