Govt to set up national committee to monitor TPPA – Mustapa.
KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama) — The government will establish as a national committee to monitor, facilitate and oversee the overall implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said the committee would consist representatives from ministries and government agencies involved with the TPPA.

“We will inform our Cabinet collegues before the national committee is set up as we need the cooperation of all ministeries,” he told reporters after delivering a speech at the Japan-Malaysia Invest Symposium here today.

Mustapa said the suggestion to set up the committee was discussed with the chairman of the Parliamentary Caucus on TPPA yesterday.
