Steps towards developing an fta negotiating plan for goods

The confusion begins…

…..so many products..so many markets!!


Group a analyzing your country s position

Group A: Analyzing your Country’s position

  • Identify the sectors of Export interest

  • Identify major ASEAN market for each product

  • Check out the consumer preference in the importing Country

  • At what price are you entering that market?

  • What import duty rates is your product facing in each of these markets?

  • What is the final landing price of your product in that market?


Group b analyzing competition

Group B: Analyzing competition

  • Who are the other competing suppliers?

  • Are they WTO members?

  • Are they Developed/developing/LDC

  • Do they have any RTA with that Country?

  • What is the duty rate faced by your competing suppliers?

  • At what price is your competing supplier entering into that market?

If for a particular product, your competing supplier in any ASEAN market is a WTO member and is an LDC, then you need to consider that product under Priority sector for tariff reduction. Since the benefit that your country gets as LDC, you will get under RTA.


Group 3 analyzing import status

Group 3: Analyzing Import status

  • Identify 5 major sectors/products of Import interest to your country

  • From which ASEAN market are you importing?

    Since these are the sectors of import interest to your country, you will not require negotiating tariff duty reduction on these tariff lines with these markets.
