Artificial intelligence, digital trade and digital customs clearance

The digital partnership between the EU and Singapore stands for more exchange and cooperation on digitalization topics. Specifically, for example, joint research is to be conducted on artificial intelligence (AI). Submarine telecommunications via undersea cables is also on the agenda. It is to be part of the sustainable digital infrastructure linking the EU and Southeast Asia. Advancing digital customs is also a goal of the partnership. It is intended to further facilitate digital trade.
