[ The ASEAN Economic Community Gives Birth to an Economic Mega-Region ]
ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) is scheduled to become the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the end of 2015.
The integration of the 10 ASEAN member nations will create a large economic region with a population of over 600 million people.
Created under the concept of the free movement of people, things and money, with shared frameworks such as the abolition of customs duties within the region, harmonization of trade, and investment liberalization this new region will contribute to even greater economic revitalization in the area.
[ Singapore is the Heart of ASEAN ]
ASEAN is moving from a manufacturing base to an important market.
One example of this is the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) which bundles together the five FTAs that ASEAN holds with the six countries of Japan, China, Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand.
If the RCEP is realized it will create an economic mega-region comprising 3.4 billion people (approx. half the world’s population), a GDP of 20 trillion dollars (approx. 30% of global GDP), and total trade of 10 trillion dollars (approx. 30% of global trade).
At the heart of all this, Singapore has a high probability of becoming the focal point for the meeting of the two major economic zones of the EU and the AEC. It is thus no understatement to say that Singapore is a location that will contribute greatly to business growth for companies looking to expand into the ASEAN region.
