ASEAN - Outlook for 2016 and Beyond


About the Business Luncheon:

The ASEAN Community has been formally established. At the same time, various quarters are still not very familiar with the details and benefits of the ASEAN Community. In particular, the business sectors are not sure what the economic pillar of the ASEAN Community entails. Many measures for economic integration have been implemented but such actions are not well known or accepted by the business community.

It is useful to look at a few specific areas of ASEAN economic integration and to explore what further action is needed to root community building. In doing so, the outlook for the ASEAN Community going into 2017, which is the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, will be discussed.
