The changes in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) made in order to agree to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) reflect the demands of many of the developing countries involved in the negotiations to remain committed to the treaty, given the withdrawal of the United States from the former in early 2017. Most of those changes were the ‘suspension’ of many, but certainly not all, of the provisions that deal with intellectual property and technology transfer. While the expansion of the CPTPP remains a cornerstone of Japanese foreign policy in Asia, the efforts to enlarge the geographical scope of the treaty takes place amidst the negotiation of other large, plurilateral (or ‘megaregional’) economic agreements such as the Regional Comprehensive Partnership Agreement (RCEP), China’s ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative, as well as important bilateral trade negotiations between the US and, respectively, China and Japan. Given the rapidly changing geopolitical landscape in Asia, countries that have not signed on to the CPTPP are scrutinizing the costs and benefits of joining the treaty, and weighing all of their options.

Prior to joining UNCTAD, he worked with the United Nations in New York and Vienna, and with an international law firm in Tokyo. Mr. Adachi holds a Juris Doctor from the UCLA School of Law and is admitted to the bars of Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, USA.

安達氏は、UNCTADと知的財産課の概要について紹介した後、最近協議が行われている2つの特恵貿易投資協定である、環太平洋パートナーシップに関する包括的で先進的な協定(CPTPP)および、地域包括的経済連携(RCEP)の交渉過程について説明した。TPP / CPTPPに関しては、2017年初めに米国がTPPから離脱した後、開発途上国の参加によってCPTPPの最終文書に関する合意に達した際には、多くの知的財産に関する項目を保留する必要があったことが指摘されました。現時点で、最終文書に署名した途上国のうち4カ国がまだCPTTPを批准していません。RCEPに関する協議も困難に直面しており、2019年11月には、医薬品へのアクセスといった分野等において受ける影響を懸念して、インドが協議から離脱すると決定しました。これらの協定の最近の動向は、多国間条約によって幅広い課題を取り扱う「メガレギュレーション」が注目される一方、その実現は必然的でも容易でもないことを示しています。さらに、近年では以前に比べて特恵貿易投資協定があまり締結されておらず、報復関税や投資に対する国内規制が増加している状況の中で協議が行われていることも困難を増幅させています。
