Before 30 November 2019, will it be announced that the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) free trade agreement negotiations have concluded?

This question was generated from the IARPA Global Forecasting Challenge 2.

RCEP is a proposed trade agreement between Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) members and their free trade agreement partners (RCEP, ASEAN). Negotiators have worked on a trade deal for several years, and now hope to have an agreement by the end of the year (TheHinduBusinessLine, StraitsTimes). Ratification by the parties to the agreement is not required for a "yes" resolution.

Resolves positive if by 00:00:01 UTC November 30, 2019, ASEAN representatives or representatives of any relevant government agency involved in negotiations on behalf of an RCEP participating country (any one of 16 countries) makes an announcement that the RCEP negotiations have concluded, without a contradicting claim by a representative in the following 24 hours.


Metaculus help: Predicting

Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.

The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available.

The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.

Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Community Stats

Metaculus help: Community Stats

Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.

When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
