The Digital Economy Partnership Agreement (DEPA) was born out of the common interest of Chile,
New Zealand and Singapore to harness the potential of the Digital Economy to target smaller economies
and provide more opportunities to include more people and MSMEs in the global economy.
The main objective of this agreement is to establish basic rules to promote these countries as platforms
for the digital economy. This includes not only having a friendly framework for companies, where they
can export their digital services and products, but also exploring new subjects in the technological
context that serve society in general through inclusive economic development.
Chile, New Zealand and Singapore signed the agreement in a virtual ceremony on June 12, 2020.
