On Tuesday, 16th July 2019, the European Commission presents an EU high level Seminar on Geographical Indications for Agri-food products in Singapore. In anticipation of the entry into force of the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA), the Commission presents the concept of geographical indications in greater detail, as well as highlights the business opportunities and benefits that geographical indications offer for producers, business people and consumers alike.

Geographical Indications (GIs) are key to the success of the EUSFTA. The EU and Singapore agreed that protection of EU GIs in Singapore was a key issue to allow the entry into force of the EUSFTA.

GIs:

• Protect farmers’ and producers’ rights

• Guarantee authenticity to consumers,

• Protect local value at global level.

This seminar brings together various stakeholders with shared interest in quality foods and beverages as well as regulatory framework for food quality and trade: authorities of Singapore, food and drinks business community of Singapore (importers/exporters, retailers, representatives of chambers of commerce) and EU Member States diplomatic and business representatives.
