This chapter outlines the developments in international disciplines concerning state-owned enterprises (SOEs) with a particular focus on the outcomes in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement. Despite the uncertainty of the TPP’s future, its provisions live on in the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), and in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
