ASEAN countries will benefit less from the RCEP than other (deeper) trade agreements. ASEAN economies will have the least benefit among RCEP signatories, given that, given the existing network of trade agreements, they have the least flexibility to reduce barriers with other members. This is part of the reason why economies such as Vietnam and Malaysia should benefit more from the recently signed comprehensive and progressive agreement for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) than from the RCEP. This is consistent with the World Bank`s recent analysis, which indicates that the EU-Indonesia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement would bring Indonesia far greater economic benefits than the RCEP. These agreements are also more ambitious than the RCEP. For example, unlike the RCEP, the CPTPP and the EU-Indonesia EPA have provisions for the settlement of state investment disputes and rules for state-owned enterprises. “all forms and types of financial, commercial, scientific, technical, economic or technical information, including samples, plans, compilations, program equipment, formulas, designs, prototypes, methods, techniques, processes, processes, programs or codes, tangible or intangible, and whether, physically, electronically, photographically, photographically or in writing, is stored, or plans to do so; and (B) the information derives independent economic value, real or potential, from the fact that it is not known to all by another person who may derive an economic benefit from the disclosure or use of the information and is not easily identifiable by appropriate means.” Trade secrets are an important but invisible part of a company`s intellectual property. Their contribution to the value of a company, as measured by its market capitalization, can be significant.  Being invisible is difficult to measure. Patents are a visible contribution, but delayed and unsuitable for internal innovations. An internal dashboard provides an overview of the cost of risk to employees who leave to serve or create competing businesses.

(2) appropriate information protection measures; and (3) that derive an independent economic value from the fact that they are not known to the public.”  The European Union`s (EU) Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with regional blocs of African countries (and some African countries) aim to promote more than boost trade between the EU and African countries.
