About the Program

The RCEP was signed on November 15, 2020, by 15 countries—10 members of ASEAN, as well as its dialogue partners South Korea, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand—to establish a mutually beneficial economic partnership in order to facilitate the expansion of regional and global trade and investment.

The RCEP forms the world’s largest trading bloc, accounting for about 30 percent of the global gross domestic product and a third of the world population (2.1 billion people). The RCEP is considered the largest free trade agreement in history, larger than both the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and the European Union.

This webinar will discuss the implications of RCEP and how businesses can prepare and benefit from the opportunities in relation to Singapore, China and Vietnam.
