Malaysia has signed the CPTPP (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) but not ratified it due to pushback by politicians and NGOs who are concerned about the loss of sovereignty and Bumiputera privileges. Are these concerns unfounded? Tricia Yeoh, CEO of IDEAS, debates with CPTPP opposer, Azlan Awang, Senior Fellow at MTEM, about the merits of this controversial agreement.
