America's desire to regain their commercial lead in Asia has been expressed through the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). The partnership should result in a vast free-trade zone in the region and now represents a key part of America's foreign policy "pivot" towards Asia. What impact can the European Union (EU) and France have in the region when faced with an ever advancing United States? Is the EU active enough in its partnerships with Asia Pacific countries to allow it to back off? What impact will the TPP negotiations have on EU and French negotiations with countries in the region, and particularly with Japan?
