The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was a proposed trade agreement that aimed to deepen economic ties and promote trade and investment among a group of Pacific Rim countries. The agreement was negotiated between 12 countries: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam.

This does not cover all Pacific Rim countries.

Statement 2 is also incorrect. The TPP was primarily a trade agreement aimed at reducing trade barriers and promoting economic integration among the participating countries. It did not solely focus on maritime security or establish a strategic alliance for that purpose.
