Letter From Malaysia to Canada

February 4, 2016

The Honorable Chrystia Freeland
Minister of International Trade
Canada

Dear Minister Freeland:

In connection with the signing on this date of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (the "Agreement"), I have the honour to confirm the following agreement reached between representatives of the Government of Malaysia and the Government of Canada:

For greater certainty, motor vehicles shall be considered originating if they qualify as originating in accordance with Chapter 3 (Rules of Origin and Origin Procedures) of the Agreement.

I have the honour to propose that this letter and your letter of confirmation in reply, equally valid in English and French, shall constitute an agreement between our Governments, subject to dispute settlement under Chapter 28 (Dispute Settlement) of the TPP Agreement, which shall enter into force on the date of entry into force of the TPP Agreement as between Malaysia and Canada.

Sincerely,

MUSTAPA MOHAMED
Minister of International Trade and Industry
