Launch of Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement Booklets for Businesses

The RCEP Agreement will bolster the market and open up employment opportunities for businesses and
people in the region. It will enter into force 60 days after a minimum of six ASEAN signatories and three
ASEAN FTA Partner signatories ratify the agreement.

To date, the ASEAN Secretariat has notified signatories of the deposit of Singapore's, China's and Japan's
Instruments of Ratification. Singapore looks forward to ratification by RCEP participating countries so that
the Agreement will enter into force by early 2022, as targeted.

MTI has produced three booklets to share the benefits of the key chapters of the RCEP Agreement.
Companies may learn more about how they can capitalise on the Agreement from these booklets.
