Our friends at Trade and Investment British Columbia invite you to a webinar on business opportunities in Malaysia and Singapore.
Singapore is Canada’s largest source and destination of foreign direct investment (FDI) among South-East Asian countries and one of the busiest container ports of the region. Malaysia’s GDP is projected to grow by 5% in 2022 and it has a growing middle class that offers an increasingly attractive market for B.C. exporters.
Through the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Canada and B.C. now have preferential access to some of the world’s most dynamic and fast-growing markets, which will strengthen B.C. businesses, grow the economy, and create good jobs in all regions of B.C. The CPTPP trade bloc represents 495 million people with a combined gross domestic product of C$13.5 trillion – a full 13.5% of global GDP.
Singapore ratified the CPTPP in 2018. Malaysia is also a member, but has not yet ratified the agreement, but B.C. businesses and investors can learn of the future benefits and prepare their market entry.
If you are interested in the Singapore or Malaysian markets or want to learn more about how the CPTPP can reduce your costs and make you more competitive, this webinar is for you.
APF Canada President and CEO Jeff Nankivell will be speaking at this webinar.
