The key benefits of the EUSFTA include the elimination of customs duties by the 5th year, liberal and flexible Rules of Origin for Singapore’s exports, improved market access to services sectors, enhanced opportunities in government procurement, reduction of technical and non-tariff barriers in key sectors, and the enhanced protection of intellectual property rights.
