A Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is a legally binding agreement between two or more countries to reduce or eliminate barriers to trade, and facilitate cross border movement of goods and services between the territories of the Parties.
Since the signing of her first FTA under the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) in 1993, Singapore’s network of FTAs has expanded to cover 18 regional and bilateral FTAs with 24 trading partners. Singapore’s FTAs have been instrumental in helping Singapore-based businesses strengthen cross-border trade by eliminating or reducing import tariff rates, providing preferential access to services sectors, easing investment rules, improving intellectual property regulations, and opening government procurement opportunities.
