Trade ministers of the 11 countries that remain in the free-trade Trans-Pacific Partnership after U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out announced a basic accord on moving ahead on Saturday.

Canada had balked at an earlier proposal, and Trudeau said it would take time to finish talks on a trade deal to benefit all in the region.

He mentioned labor rights, environmental protection, gender issues and the auto trade as areas of concern.
