Sydney: State of the Nation - ASEAN

ASEAN - Common Market, distinct strengths

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) provides a framework for standardising trade and business environments amongst ASEAN member economies, which collectively form a market of over 660 million people. While ASEAN is working towards a common market, its member countries are diverse and often have distinct strengths (for example, as a financial centre, logistics/distribution hub, manufacturing base, provider of ICT/web services provider ). This forum will explore how to maximise the benefits of the AEC to tap ASEAN’s surging consumer market, whilst leveraging the distinct strengths of ASEAN member countries.
