Mexico and Japan have committed to accelerating a possible Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) between 11 signatory countries, but without the United States, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Tuesday.

Guajardo also said that Mexico would propose anti-corruption regulations for an updated North American Free Trade Agreement that were stronger than the original TPP rules. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the TPP in January, shortly after taking office.
