25 Feb Italy-ASEAN Association webinar: RCEP and EU-China CAI: What’s in it for Italy and Europe
How does the signing of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) free trade agreement affect European businesses? Associate Professor Simon Tay, Chairman of the SIIA, spoke at the Italy-ASEAN Association webinar, “RCEP and EU-China CAI: What’s in it for Italy and Europe” on Wednesday, 24 February 2021. At the webinar, he presented the view that the signing of the RCEP agreement is a significant milestone and a game changer, especially at a time of increased protectionism, for businesses with a presence in RCEP markets. The common and simplified rules of origin under the RCEP agreement are designed to facilitate the integration of regional value chains.
