We examine the e¤ect of the United States-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA) on the value of frms listed in the Singapore Exchange using event study analysis. Despite the predictability of the FTA negotiation, we find that one event - the removal of the last obstacle to the free trade deal in January 2003 - increases the value of firms in some industries by 2-5%. These results may indicate that trade liberalization and FTAs do increase the value of firms.
