The European Union and Singapore have finished negotiating a Free Trade Agreement and an Investment Protection Agreement.

The agreements aim to:

  • remove nearly all customs duties and get rid of overlapping bureaucracy
  • improve trade for goods like electronics, food products and pharmaceuticals
  • stimulate green growth, remove trade obstacles for green tech and create opportunities for environmental services
  • encourage EU companies to invest more in Singapore, and Singaporean companies to invest more in the EU.

The European Commission has now presented the finalised texts of the agreements to the Council. In line with the procedures foreseen in the EU Treaties, the trade and investment agreements will require the approval of the Council before they are sent to the European Parliament for consent.
