Ardern said CPTPP was "a different deal than what was being negotiated at the time that the United States were at the table ... not least because there have been some suspended clauses which were important to NZ in particular".
The Trudeau government had previously never fully committed to the TPP, and spent months consulting the public on the agreement. At the same time, Canada warned there was more work ahead.
