The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a free-trade deal between 10 ASEAN member states and Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, and South Korea. It is the world's biggest regional trade deal, and it will create the world's most populous trade area. This edited collection features 10 contributions from multidisciplinary authors and is meant to share research and best practises on different aspects of the RCEP. It presents research projects that contribute to the discussion about the theory, lessons learned, and business strategies, to give a better understanding of the RCEP and how it can shape policy in member countries. The themes in each chapter can also serve to evaluate reports on the RCEP's overall progress. The book covers a broad range of subjects, including an overview of the RCEP, digital economy, peer-to-peer lending, international e-commerce, big data, ICT readiness and much more.

This work is a key source of information and reference for RCEP development for academics and researchers (in economics and political science), government and trade organisations and policymakers interested in the RCEP. Members of the general public who want to understand debates surrounding the RCEP will also benefit from the information provided.


General readers, academics, economists, political scientists, policymakers, government and trade organizations.
