Tuesday, 15 December 2020 | Indirect Tax Live: Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement and its implications (8 am BST)
As reported in the media, 15 countries in Asia-Pacific (10 ASEAN member countries, Japan, China, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand) signed the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement at the fourth RCEP summit on 15 November 2020.
With these countries accounting for 30% of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP), RCEP will be the world's largest free trade agreement (FTA). It is also the first FTA between the Asian economic powerhouses of Japan, China and South Korea.
While RCEP will likely only enter into force from 2022, the impact of RCEP to companies’ operations will be significant to warrant attention today. Whilst the US-China trade disputes and the COVID-19 pandemic continue to put a strain on companies’ global supply chain, the RCEP on the other hand, through deepening of trade relations, is expected to provide the much needed boost for companies to recover from the current economic situation.
In this 60 minutes webcast, EY Global Trade professionals in Asia-Pacific will provide insights on the following topics:
We hope these topics will help you better understand the impact of RCEP on your operations and in shaping your new FTA strategies.
