The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the largest regional trade agreement to be signed this decade by 12 countries, including some of Singapore’s top trading partners.
 
With the TPP in place, the food manufacturing industry will stand to gain the following benefits:
 
  • New opportunities in new FTA markets like Canada and Mexico. TPP also provides improved access to existing FTA markets like Japan and the USA
  • Enhanced market access via tariff rate quotas that were not available to our food manufacturing industry, which were previously not available under Singapore’s bilateral FTAs.
  • In other markets, Singapore food manufacturers are not constrained by tariff rate quotas, giving our manufacturers an added advantage compared to other TPP companies.
  • The accumulation provision under the Rules of Origin Chapter allows for regional sourcing of raw materials across all 12 TPP countries, making it easier for Singapore food manufacturers to meet the rules of origin requirement and to enjoy the preferential tariff benefits under the TPP.
 
Come join us at this seminar to learn about the benefits of the TPP for the Singapore food manufacturing industry.  Learn how you can prepare your company to meet the requirements of the TPP to enjoy its benefits.
