SE and AEC

By 2015, a single common market of ASEAN countries will be created under the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). The regional integration is to create a competitive market of over 600 million people from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

According to Business in Asia, AEC will benefit the ASEAN countries because it will open more regional cooperation and there will be free flow of goods, services, investment capital and skilled labor following the liberalization. Many businesses have begun preparing themselves three years ahead of time to meet the challenges and opportunities of the AEC.
