The Benefits. The RCEP is tipped to boost economic growth in the region by delivering improved export and foreign investment opportunities, including the following benefits: new scope for trade in services throughout the region including across telecommunications, professional and financial services; improved mechanisms for tackling non-tariff barriers including in areas such as customs procedures, quarantine and technical standards; greater investment certainty for businesses; rules on e-commerce to make it easier for businesses to trade online; a common set of rules on intellectual property; agreed rules of origin that will increase the competitiveness of regional production chains; and access deals with all RCEP parties which build on existing free trade agreements, as well as the prospect of an agreement on market access with India.
