A DAG-to-DAG is a joint civil society body between the partner countries of a Free Trade Agreement, bringing together the separate DAGs of each party. This is the 1st joint meeting of the EU and Singapore DAGs under the EU-Singapore FTA.
The DAG-to-DAG meetings allow for civil society organisations which are involved on a regular basis in their respective domestic monitoring exercises to come together and exchange views on implementation issues. In the 1st meeting DAG-to-DAG under the EU-Singapore FTA on 19 November 2020, the members will most importantly get to know each other but also exchange views on the work programme in the first mandate and consider possible topics for future work.
