USA once considered The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership as an essential part of their dominance within The Asian-Pacific Region. But in recent years US citizens have voted against Obama’s policy. A new President has already declared he would embark on withdrawal from the Partnership from his first day in office.
Having noticed the vacuum created by the USA’s possible departure, Chinese diplomats and politicians pressed forward, trying to persuade member countries to be more active in the projects implemented by China in the Region.
Previously, the US had decided on the TTIP establishment as opposition to China’s growing influence, not allowing the country as a Partnership member.
