JOINT STATEMENT FOR THE THIRD FORMAL NEGOTIATIONS ON THE JAPAN-SINGAPORE ECONOMIC AGREEMENT FOR A NEW AGE PARTNERSHIP (JSEPA)

The third round of formal negotiations of the Japan-Singapore Economic Agreement for a New Age Partnership (JSEPA) was held from Monday, 3 September 2001 to Wednesday, 5 September 2001, in Singapore. It was led by Chief Negotiators Ambassador Kazuo Asakai and Ambassador Lim Chin Beng.

As with previous meetings, the atmosphere was constructive and friendly. The two sides narrowed differences substantially during this round. Substantial progress on key issues was made.

Both sides reaffirmed their commitment to conclude a substantive and comprehensive agreement. They will work expeditiously and continue negotiations so as to meet the deadline set by the two governments last year that the JSEPA should be concluded by the end of this year.
