The European Union (EU) hosts its European Dairy, Olive Oil and Table Olives Webinar in Singapore on 18 March 2021, Thursday from 3.30pm–5.30pm (GMT+8).

Targeted at F&B importers, distributors, retailers as well as restaurants and hotels, the webinar will spotlight the EU’s ‘More Than Food’ campaign. This campaign aims to shed light on how agricultural products from the EU are about much more than just food and beverages. It is also about offering safe, quality and sustainable products for consumers across the globe.

The webinar keynote will be delivered by Ms Justyna Lasik, Head of Economic and Trade Section, European Union Delegation to Singapore. The EU is Singapore’s fourth largest goods trading partner while Singapore is the EU’s second largest goods trading partner in ASEAN. Bilateral trade in goods is valued at more than 41 billion in 2020 (S$65.6 billion). Ms Lasik will present the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA), and explain its concrete benefits for trade relations between the EU and Singapore in the food and beverage sector.
