    Asian countries have concluded negotiations on what could become the world's biggest trade deal.

    Fifteen nations agreed on the terms of a Chinese-backed economic partnership during the ASEAN summit in Bangkok.

    India was the only country that did not join, but it can still do so before the pact is signed next year.
