The ASEAN region is made up of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Since the formation of ASEAN 45 years ago, the organisation has been working toward closer integration. That objective is now almost achieved with a common market – the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) – scheduled to become effective from 2015.
The AEC will see intra-ASEAN tariffs eliminated, enabling the region to function as a more cohesive entity and for industries to operate and invest with a regional focus, undistorted by tariff structures and different national standards.
The automotive sector is already responding to the opportunities offered by the AEC, by concentrating production capacity in some countries while reducing it in others.
