8:06 am
kind of impact? will this new trade deal have well, that is a very ambitious trade deal. it covers nearly a 3rd of the world's population, as well as nearly a 3rd of economic activity in the world. it would have been even bigger, had india been a part of it, but india pulled out last year because it was worried about competition from cheap . china made products flooding its market. it was also worried about competition from dairy farmers in new zealand and australia. but because of the sheer size of this deal, it is still a very major trade agreement. it will set up a big trading block. and what it hopes to achieve is it wants to progressively lower tariffs within the coming years. it also aims to set one just one set of rules that will make it easier for member states to trade with each other and to invest in each other. now, this where this agreement fails though, is it doesn't go far enough. it doesn't mention environmental protection and labor standards, and that's where the criticism of this deal comes in. some politicians,
8:07 am
trade unions and activists say, this is not a fully comprehensive trade agreement in that sense because it doesn't offer those protections. it doesn't set standards. now, when can we expect this deal to be ratified while it needs at least half of those member states in the trading block to ratify it and that process can take up to 2 years. having said that, mrs van member states have said they are they have they are, they want to see this deal being ratified as soon as possible because they want to signal that this region is open for trade and investment, especially given the economic downturn caused by the pandemic,, and the closer we think of these trade deals, you do it back to the c.c.p., which is famously designs to counter journeys influence in the region. what does this new trade deal mean for china specifically? well, this trade deal has been described as a china back deal,

and china did push hard for it. china, when the idea was 1st mooted in 20128 years ago. it was observer, saw the trade agreement as a way for china to counter u.s. influence and then u.s. president barack obama. now in the last 4 years, china has had very little competition in this region, especially after the us president donald trump pulled out of the trans-pacific partnership known as the t p p. and that agreement went ahead without the u.s. under different names. so now there are 2 trade deals, including this one, where the u.s. is not a part of it, and it service say this allows china to solidify its broader and bishan in the region. now, china is already a main trade partner for most of the member states of this trade deal, whether it's as an export destination or a source of imports. so that this trade deal, we're allowed china to set trade rules and expand its influence in the region. now,,
8:09 am
now that joe biden has been declared u.s., president elect, well, we'll have to wait and see where the u.s. policy on trade and issues will evolve. now, and many of the analysts say they don't expect the u.s. to enter a trade deal with the region. so soon, and they don't think it's likely because biden will have to deal with a lot more issues on the domestic front. and he won't want to risk upsetting unions that helped him win the election. fascinating developments in disease that we're very interested to see how this plays out for us. lou reporting from kuala lumpur. thank you. thousands of people have been protesting again in peru over the dismissal of former president's martin vizcarra. those protests to be going on for days and are among the largest seen in the past 3 decades. at least one person has been killed in the unrest. vickery has been banned from leaving the country just days after being impeached amid allegations of corruption

8:12 am
r r r. the protesters goal overturn the results of the november 3rd presidential election and give tromp a 2nd, 4 years in office. these demonstrators believe the media, the democratic party, and other sinister forces conspired to steal the vote from trump. my mission is to let the pretty country and especially what should we have not given up on the fact that there's irregularities in voting and they're being exposed every patriot who can hear my voice. it's a conspiracy being spread by some of the president's closest allies and lapped up by millions who have no control over our own destiny anymore. and so if there's a big corruption by fine and can't vote media when i say, oh,, i mean that literally on a.b.c. n.b.c. c.b.s.,
