In: Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report 2011: Post-crisis trade and investment opportunities
AbstractOnly 20 RTAs involving at least one member from the Asia-Pacific region were in force in 1995. By May 2011, this number had grown to 122. Furthermore, the contribution of Asia and the Pacific to the global trend towards regionalism has also become dominant; since 2005, the region has contributed at least half of all agreements that have entered into force annually.
