Singapore FTA

The leading edge U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is the first U.S. FTA with an Asian nation and will serve as the foundation for other possible FTAs in Southeast Asia under President Bush’s Enterprise for ASEAN Initiative (EAI). The U.S.-Singapore FTA expands U.S. market access in goods, services, investment, government procurement, intellectual property, and provides for groundbreaking cooperation in promoting labor rights and the environment. The U.S.-Singapore FTA was launched on November 16, 2000. The first round of negotiations was held that year, in Washington DC, December 4-21. The final round was in Singapore, November 11-17 2002 and the Agreement was concluded on January 15, 2003.
