Abstract

With the shift in the centre of economic gravity towards Asia, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) of the ASEAN 6 countries has assumed a new meaning. The paper examines modalities of substantial trade coverage, sensitive list, and formulation of rules of origin with a developmental angle in the CEPA. These could be crucial, especially in terms of providing a negotiating template for the RCEP and broader East Asian regionalism. However, it may be mentioned that India's partnership with Japan will have to be viewed not in isolation but in the context of India-China and India-US partnerships as well.

Keywords: Regional Economic Integration; RCEP; East Asia; India-Japan
