Japan's Amari: Intellectual property not yet worked out at TPPFri Jul 31,
2015 4:12am EDT


LAHAINA, Hawaii (Reuters) - 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.
