(Worthy News) - A declaration released at the close of an Asian-Pacific trade summit says leaders of 21 nations will continue working toward a free trade agreement that would include all their countries.
Members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum denounce calls for protectionist policies amid what the declaration describes as a "slow and uneven recovery from the financial crisis of 2008."
Prospects for a sweeping new economic pact are shadowed by the free-trade skepticism of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and Britain's vote to leave the European Union. [ Source ]
