Attached below is the October 15, 2015 version of the investment chapter for the proposed Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, known as RCEP. This text is made public for the first time by KEI.

http://keionline.org/node/2474

The RCEP is a massive proposed trade agreement, some see as a rival or alternative to the TransPacific Partnership (TPP). The RCEP currently involves the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, plus six other countries: Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand.

Collectively these sixteen countries have a population of 3,488,410,867 in 2014, which was 48 percent of the world population of 7,260,710,677, according to the World Bank.

This is a small family owned restaurant. The food is very good, but perhaps even more important is the charming setting. Many of the customers appear to be regulars. The service is always cheerful and friendly. The atmosphere is warm, relaxed, and this is an excellent place to have dinner and conversation with friends.
