Many regions in China recently reported benefits brought by the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) in January, the first month since RCEP took effect, and Chinese listed companies engaging in export business are preparing for taking the new business opportunities brought by RCEP, reported Securities Daily Friday.
On February 14, the Changsha Customs in central China's Hunan Province reported that the province has seen 140 million yuan of export and import goods receive relevant dividends delivered by RCEP in January.
The Changsha Customs has issued altogether 139 RCEP certificates of origin and declarations of origin to export products, involving goods of 138 million yuan and tariff concessions of about 1.656 million yuan.
