RCEP`s 2.2 billion members make up nearly a third of the world`s population and account for a similar share in the global economy and trade, according to the Association of South Asian Nations (ASEAN). The Peterson Institute for International Economics estimates that the new deal could increase the global economy by $186 billion a year. Until September 2019, U.S. automakers reduced capital investment and delayed hiring due to uncertainty caused by the trade war.  The two sides did not immediately distribute copies of the agreement in Chinese, raising the question of whether the translation issues were fully resolved and whether the final text in the Chinese version would be as demanding on the Beijing government as in the English version.

The domestic declaration of trade war is censored in China. While news agencies are allowed to cover the conflict, their coverage is subject to restrictions; The South China Morning Post said Chinese media workers had been ordered not to „over-report“ the trade war, while an article in the New York Times said government news agencies had tried to promote the official line, with authorities limiting the use of the term „trade war.“  Social media posts about the conflict are also subject to censorship.   Chilean Deputy Minister of Commerce Rodrigo Yanez told CNBC, „It is very important for Chile to conclude a trade agreement between the United States .
