Shining a Light on RCEP

This month we are pleased to continue our Shining a Light series with a special webinar focusing on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership ("RCEP").

After eight years of negotiation, 15 countries came together on 15 November 2020, to sign one of the largest ever free trade agreements – the RCEP, which covers approximately 30 percent of world GDP and almost 30 percent of the global population.

The agreement will provide a framework for facilitating free and more streamlined trade arrangements among the signatories.

This agreement is unprecedented in scale, scope and potential impact, both in Asia Pacific and globally.

Join our regional KPMG Trade & Customs leaders as we discuss:

  • Global supply chain opportunities and benefits of RCEP;
  • Rules of origin (including consignment and certificate of origin requirements);
  • Other benefits including e-commerce, investment and the movement of people;
  • How RCEP compares to our existing regional multi-lateral and bi-lateral agreements; and
  • How your business can plan for the implementation of RCEP.

We look forward to hosting you at this event and note we have allowed extra time for questions.
