While policy-makers and scholars often emphasize the significance of the rule-making aspect when they discuss the benefits of negotiating FTAs, we know little about the ways in which rules are actually made. We need impartial assessment of the status of rule-making to draw any concrete policy implications. By using the case study of e-commerce chapters, this paper will examine (i) whether rule-making achievements of TPP are substantial and (ii) whether rule-making achievements of TPP, if any, have some impact on future FTAs.
