The Rise of Mega-FTAs

The EU Centre has published a fact sheet entitled The Rise of Mega-FTAs, prepared by Mr Ruben van den Hengel (Intern, EU Centre in Singapore). This fact sheet was produced as part of our Global Trade System Roundtable programme. The Roundtable was held at the Fullerton Hotel, Singapore on 3 October 2013.

The fact sheet serves as a useful introduction to the concept of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and the FTA negotiation process. Furthermore,  it provides important background information on recent developments in mega FTAs such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
