US Secretary of State John Kerry (C) talks to reporters after a press conference with Vietnam's Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh (back C) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hanoi on August 7, 2015Asia-Pacific countries negotiating a vast free-trade pact will hopefully secure a deal by the end of this year, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday in Hanoi. Kerry said the 12 countries negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — including the US, Japan and Vietnam — had made good “progress” during the last round of talks on the Hawaiian island of Maui last week. “We are hoping very much that over the course of a couple of months, before the end of the year, (the) TPP can be completed,” he told reporters after a meeting with Vietnam’s Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh in Hanoi.
