ASEAN Economic Community (AEC)

E-mail Print PDF

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) shall be the goal of regional economic integration by 2015.

AEC envisages the following key characteristics:

(a) a single market and production base,

(b) a highly competitive economic region,

(c) a region of equitable economic development, and

(d) a region fully integrated into the global economy.

The AEC areas of cooperation include human resources development and capacity building; recognition of professional qualifications; closer consultation on macroeconomic and financial policies; trade financing measures; enhanced infrastructure and communications connectivity; development of electronic transactions through e-ASEAN; integrating industries across the region to promote regional sourcing; and enhancing private sector involvement for the building of the AEC. In short, the AEC will transform ASEAN into a region with free movement of goods, services, investment, skilled labour, and freer flow of capital.
