TOKYO -- The final details of the revised Trans-Pacific Partnership to be signed in March have won approval from all 11 member states following concessions to such holdouts as Canada and Vietnam that will be spelled out in separate agreements.

The revised TPP covers 12.9% of the world's gross domestic product and 14.9% of global trade. Despite the U.S. withdrawal, the current agreement is still on par with Japan and the European Union's recently completed Economic Partnership Agreement.
