Trade Agreements Malaysia

The objective of the SAA is to assess the potential impact of the trade and trade provisions of the proposed free trade agreement on economic, social, human rights and environmental aspects in any trading partner and in other relevant countries. In addition, the increasing internationalization of trade and participation in global value chains (GCC) is enabling Malaysian SMEs to achieve economies of scale, increase market share and increase productivity. In this regard, Malaysia has engaged in various free trade agreements (FTAs) to create better market access opportunities for Malaysian goods and services. These bilateral trade and investment agreements were conceived as building blocks for a future agreement between the regions.
