Free trade agreements (FTAs) provide companies more prospects to expand their businesses into key overseas markets and gain competitive edge to improve profitability. Currently, Singapore has a network of 23 bilateral and regional FTAs with 34 trading partners. Therefore, companies that operate in Singapore are strategically positioned and stand to benefit greatly from utilizing these FTAs.


This workshop, which is a second run of our FTA flagship course that was launched in April 2018, aims to help you have a better appreciation of the unlocked opportunities of Singapore’s FTA network for businesses. You will learn basic concepts of various FTA elements and how these can benefit your business directly from Singapore’s trade policymakers and negotiators; as well as practical insights on how your business can gain competitive edge to improve profitability through Singapore’s FTA network from experienced supply chain management/FTA experts and Singapore companies.
