This session is a follow up to the EUSFTA outreach event held on 16 November 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Singapore.
It aims to provide companies, with a better understanding on the specific benefits of the EUSFTA for trade in goods and services in key sectors, government procurement opportunities, as well as how to take advantage of them. Participants will also gain practical insights on business opportunities in 12 EU member States.
On 19 October 2018, the European Union (EU) and Singapore signed the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA). This is the first FTA signed between the EU and an ASEAN country, which can serve as a benchmark to an eventual EU-ASEAN FTA that will increase trade and investments between the two regions.
Once entered into force, the EUSFTA will provide EU and Singapore companies with more opportunities, preferential and improved market access for products and services across many sectors. Furthermore, the EUSFTA contains provisions relating to the elimination of non-tariff barriers, customs and trade facilitation, sustainable development, competition, public procurement and intellectual property.
