SGC Breakfast Briefing on 'EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement Ratification: New Business Opportunities Ahead'

About the Topic:

Did you know that EU is Singapore’s third largest trading partner? Singapore remains an attractive market for EU companies and is the preferred gateway for doing business in Southeast Asia.

The European Union-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA) is the first bilateral Free Trade Agreement (FTA) concluded by the EU with an ASEAN country. It presents many new business opportunities which include:

  • Greater market access for goods and services
  • Removal of non-tariff barriers to trade
  • New opportunities in government procurement
  • Enhanced protection of intellectual property rights
  • Renewed commitment to sustainable development

Join us to learn more about how the upcoming EUSFTA can be used for your company’s benefit.
