While maintaining its commitment to the WTO DDA multilateral trade negotiations the European Union has
also begun negotiating and concluding Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with third countries. The recent conclusion and signing of the EU-South Korea FTA has set a benchmark for similar such agreements with other Asian countries. Negotiations are ongoing with many Asian countries and on 24-25th March 2011 Peter Berz will be in Singapore to continue such FTA negotiations with the Singapore authorities. At LKYSPP he will
present and discuss the European Union's trade policy with ASEAN, in particular its renewed engagement with individual ASEAN members in terms of negotiations for Free Trade Agreements.
