Forum "A Bigger Pie: How ICT Companies Can Benefit
This breakfast forum
was jointly organised by CNSG and iDA. The forum discussed
FTAs that are designed to create a preference zone for
the free flow of goods, services, investment, innovation
and people. To date, Singapore has signed FTAs with
ASEAN, New Zealand, Japan and the EFTA states,
with the earlier two already in force. Negotiations
are on-going with the US, Australia, Canada and Mexico.
The forum also discussed
several FTAs in the pipeline including China-ASEAN,
India and EU.
