Synopsis

In 2018, trade in goods between Singapore and the European Union reached a record high of 58.1 billion euros (S$89 billion), which is a 9% hike from 2017. (Source: European Commission)

With the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA) set to be formalised in 2019, together with the EU- Singapore Investment Protection Agreement and a partnership and cooperation agreement on its way, it is a great opportunity to leverage on this wave to understand how local companies can benefit from the EUSFTA and other measures to accelerate your entrance into the market.

SFMA together with Enterprise Singapore and Singapore Customs will be sharing with you some of the key highlights of the EUSFTA and what are the steps to take to prepare your business for the EU market. This is also a prelude to the Anuga tradeshow that SFMA is leading to Cologne in Germany in October 2019.

Key Highlights

- Step-by-step guide to exporting overseas.

- Understanding how EUSFTA (such as the rules of origin, tariff elimination schedule etc) can accelerate entry to market.

- Food safety standards of the European market.
