In Part Two of this 3-Part AEC Series, we looked at the economic potential of ASEAN in view of the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the start of 2016.
We also highlighted the favourable demographic and income trends that will drive ASEAN economies to become one of the top economic regions for investment with its single production base and a large consumer market for global corporates.
The lack of infrastructure development in ASEAN today could be seen as the biggest challenge, but it also presents immense opportunities for foreign direct investment.
With better infrastructure, more manufacturing and services can be generated and will lead to increased trade volumes in goods and services for ASEAN members.
