Economic ties between Singapore and Mexico have always been strong, with bilateral trade more than doubling in the last decade, reaching SGD $4.7 billion in 2017.
 
Singapore has signed our very first Free Trade Agreement with Mexico under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The CPTPP will reduce tariffs in 11 economies that together account for more than 13% of the world’s GDP.
 
Find out how the CPTPP will impact your trade with Mexico, for instance, reduced tariffs of 15% or more across 1031 HS codes in:
  • Seafood
  • Alcoholic beverages and tea
  • Textiles
  • Automotive components
Join us to network with Mexican businesses to discover new partnerships and find out how you can take advantage of the reduced tariff rates to sell or source from Latin America’s second largest economy.

Seminar Highlights:
  1. Find out how the newly minted CPTPP can work for your business with Mexico
  2. Gain insights into the Mexican economy, and turn gaps into opportunities
  3. Hear about new strategies to leverage the CPTPP when sourcing from Mexico and trading with other CPTPP countries
