Abstract: Let $ k$ be a function field in one variable over $ \mathbb{C}$ or the field $ \mathbb{C}((t))$. Let $ X$ be a $ k$-rationally simply connected variety defined over $ k$. In this paper we show that $ R$-equivalence on rational points of $ X$ is trivial and that the Chow group of zero-cycles of degree zero $ A_0(X)$ is zero. In particular, this holds for a smooth complete intersection of $ r$ hypersurfaces in $ \mathbb{P}^n_k$ of respective degrees $ d_1,\ldots ,d_r$ with $ \sum \limits _{i=1}^{r}d_i^2\leq n+1$.
