ASEAN, or the Association of South East Asian Nations, is a group of 10 emerging nations: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand. Collectively, they represent one of the most attractive destinations for trade and investment. The formation of the free-trade market ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 will further enhance the region's competitiveness in various aspects. The governments of ASEAN have identified 12 priority industries – agro-based products, air travel, automotive, e-ASEAN, electronics, fisheries, healthcare, rubber-based products, textiles, tourism, wood-based products and logistics – and are formulating the appropriate policy support for the industries. For investors, AEC is a huge consumer market with a rising middle class and disposable income. MNCs are well-prepared for AEC and local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are answering their governments' call to capitalize on the emerging opportunities. They are aware of the imminent competition and are investing in technology and management systems to boost productivity and overcome non-tariff market barriers.
