SINGAPORE, June 3 (Bernama) — The next round of negotiations on the EU-Malaysia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is expected to resume in the fourth quarter, says Ambassador & Head of Delegation of the European Union to Malaysia, Luc Vandebon. He said both sides are working to resume the process as soon as possible. “Recently an informal video conference was held between my colleagues in Brussels and the Ministry of International Trade & Industry where both sides reaffirmed their interest to further discuss and negotiate on the proposed FTA. “After such a long break, the EU and Malaysia need to compare notes and take stock on the various issues, to verify if we are in sight of each other. If this “stock taking” process goes well, as I think and hope, then we will be in a position to resume the negotiations, maybe in autumn,” he said in response to Bernama in an email interview. The Technical Working Groups of the negotiating teams met in Kuala Lumpur last...Read More
PETALING JAYA (July 11, 2013): The Malaysian ceramic industry has come out in support of the government’s initiatives to spur the growth of exports through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement, despite the dissatisfaction expressed by some quarters of the business community on the TPP talks. The FMM Malaysian Ceramic Industry Group (MCIG) chaired by Raja Datuk Abd Aziz Raja Muda Musa, who is also Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) vice-president, views Malaysia’s participation in the TPP as positive. FMM MCIG said in a statement yesterday that the ratification of the TPP would be particularly beneficial should it give wider access into the US market, adopt rules of origin (ROO) to minimise abuse and facilitate and expedite dialogue on standards conformance between partners. “The FMM MCIG would therefore urge the government to pursue the above items diligently during its negotiations on the TPP agreement,” it said. Malaysian exports of...Read More
KUALA LUMPUR, July 15 (Bernama) — The Trans- Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, which involves 12 countries, will not be signed in October as what was intially expected as there are many areas which have not been agreed on. Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) secretary-general, Datuk Dr Rebecca Fatima Sta Maria, said the TPP negotiations were talks among equals and even if one party did not agree, there was no conclusion to the agreement. “The most important thing is that we will not compromise Malaysia’s sovereignty and that we will stick to our policy. “We use negotiating skills to exclude areas that impact on sovereignty,” she said at the Young Entrepreneur Organisation of Malaysia forum and dialogue on the TPP here Monday. In October 2010, Malaysia joined as a party to the TPP negotiations. Sta Maria said Malaysia chose to participate in the TPP negotiations at an early date so as to understand what was going on in the process of the...Read More
