Sealing the RCEP deal no mean feat, says PM

PRIME Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said it is not easy to conclude the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) as it needs to be agreed upon by all 16 countries involved. 

Dr Mahathir, who is leading the Malaysian delegation to the 35th Asean Summit in Bangkok, said the multilateral trade deal was not easy to finalise as it involved so many countries.
