UROPEAN PARLIAMENT APPROVES EU-SINGAPORE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT AND EU-SINGAPORE INVESTMENT PROTECTION AGREEMENT.
The European Union-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA) is the first FTA between the European Union (EU) and an ASEAN country. Singapore and the EU launched negotiations of the EUSFTA in 2009. The Goods and Services negotiations were concluded in 2012, while the investment protection negotiations were concluded in 2014. The investment protection elements later became the EU-Singapore Investment Protection Agreement (EUSIPA).
The EUSFTA and EUSIPA were signed in October 2018, and approved by the European Parliament in February 2019. The EUSFTA was approved by the Council of the EU on 8 November 2019 and entered into force on 21 November 2019. The EUSIPA is undergoing ratification by the regional and national parliaments of the EU Member States. This is expected to take at least two years.
