Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP)

The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is the latest and largest of multilateral agreements that was signed on November 15, 2020. Would it have an impact on supply chains throughout Asia and what other impact would it bring? On 16 December, AMCHAM held a virtual discussion on the RCEP and its implication on supply chains.

Deborah Elms, Executive Director, Asian Trade Centre, Singapore, provided an overview of what is the RCEP, the highlights and its impact on supply chains. This was then followed by the panel discussion with Mario Palacios, Sr. Managing Director, International Trade Policy of Intel Corporation, Washington DC, ShuiMei Lin, Vice President, Public Affairs & Sustainability , UPS Asia Pacific, Singapore, Siobhan Das, CEO, AMCHAM and moderated by John Goyer, Senior Director, Southeast Asia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Washington DC.

Special thanks to all our speakers for an in-depth and candid discussion.  We’d also like to thank the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AmChams of Asia Pacific (AAP) for partnering with us in this program.
