How the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) shapes supply chains in Vietnam?

The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a free trade agreement (FTA) between the ten member states of ASEAN and five regional economies (Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan and Korea) which was signed on November 15th 2020 and officially took effect from January 1st 2022. Many assessments believe that the impact of the Agreement due to tariff reduction is not much, while the impact on shaping supply chains in the RCEP and Vietnam is significant. For a more in-depth discussion of the above, the National Centre for Socio-Economic Information and Forecast (NCIF), with the support of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), will launch the workshop on November 10th 2022 which will disseminate the research results.
