How your business can tap the lucrative ASEAN region

| August 1, 2016

The Australia-ASEAN region is undergoing historic changes that impact businesses, especially SMEs, domestically and internationally.

Landmark agreements such as the ASEAN Economic Community, Trans-Pacific Partnership, Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) and others, make it critical for Australian and ASEAN businesses to be informed and position themselves to benefit from the opportunities which these agreements present.

Unprecedented world events like Brexit also have a regional impact.
ASEAN member countries comprise Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Myanmar (Burma).
Collectively, they make up the 7th largest economy in the world.
So how does an Australian business access this dynamic market to take advantage of the current climate?
