Japan's Amari: Intellectual property not yet worked out at TPP

LAHAINA, HAWAII

Japanese Economy Minister Akira Amari said on Thursday the issue of
intellectual property has not been worked out yet at the Trans-Pacific
Partnership (TPP) trade talks due to differences among each nation, and
more time is needed.

Amari told reporters that the issue needs to be discussed thoroughly to
make this ministerial meeting the last one.

Ministers from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership are in Hawaii this
week, aiming to seal the ambitious trade deal, which covers 40 percent of
the global economy.
