Conference: RCEP Agreement –Negotiation updates and issues concerned by businesses21/05/2019
Negotiations for Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) between ASEAN (including Vietnam) and 06 other member countries (China, Japan, Korea, India, Australia, and New Zealand) began in 2013 and have moved to a final stage. When completed, RCEP is expected to create a large free trade area, including Vietnam's major export partners. In addition, with the participation of large partners as suppliers of raw materials for Vietnam (such as China, Korea ...), the harmonization of rules of origin and trade facilitation commitments in RCEP promises to create new regional value chains that will help businesses make better use of the RCEP tariff preferences.
The conference is an opportunity for businesses to update information on RCEP negotiation progress and exchange information with the Negotiating Delegation about specific issues / areas that businesses are interested in or have interests in.
