CPTPP Banner




The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (“CPTPP”) is a Free Trade Agreement (“FTA”) between 11 countries: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. All 11 countries are members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). The CPTPP was concluded on 23 January 2018 in Tokyo, Japan and signed on 8 March 2018 in Santiago, Chile. Singapore ratified the CPTPP on 19 July 2018, becoming the third nation to do so after Mexico and Japan.​



The CPTPP will enhance trade among countries in the Asia-Pacific, resulting in more seamless flows of goods, services, and investment regionally. Singapore companies will gain from the substantial elimination of tariffs and non-tariff barriers for goods, improved access for service suppliers in a wide range of sectors, greater facilitation of investments, and improved access to government procurement contracts.”

- Minister Lim Hng Kiang, Minister for Trade
