The remarks came as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Australian Trade Minister and other leaders meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos (23-26 January) celebrated the conclusion of the deal between 11 countries in Asia-Pacific.
Sam Cossar-Gilbert, Friends of the Earth International trade campaigner, said:

The topic of this year’s World Economic Forum “Creating a shared future in a fractured world”.
