Ellen Frost, Adjunct Senior Fellow at the East-West Center in Washington, argues that "Far from thwarting Asian regionalism, TPP merely adds a new overlay. It gives ASEAN an additional incentive to achieve its goal of an ASEAN Economic Community by 2015. It has also set a major new pan-Asian grouping in motion."
