An Asian trade deal almost a decade in the making is set to be signed on Sunday. The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership will cement China's position as the main influence on trade in the region, leaving the US on the sidelines of two huge trade deals after Donald Trump pulled it out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in 2017. Plus, investment bank Goldman Sachs has made progress in appointing more women and people from minority backgrounds as partners - but the majority of promotions are still given to white men.
