Topic: Where is the AEC now?

Cost: Entry is free of charge for this event but all attending must book on-line via the BCCT website.

The combined GDP of the ASEAN-10 ranks larger the GDP of Brazil, Russia or India. However these countries have the advantage of being single economic and political entities. The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) was established with the goal of ensuring regional economic integration by 2015. However the “beginning of 2015 deadline” soon became an “end of 2015 milestone”. And now where are we with the AEC? What has changed, if anything? What are the new realities of the AEC? Where is Thailand in the legal changes it should be making to conform to its obligations?

Drawing on the latest data and insight with the ASEAN secretariat, this presentation provides an update to the status of the AEC. It will also cover how the AEC is supposed to modify Thai investment and labour laws, and where Thailand stands in the process of modifying such laws.

About the Speaker:

Andrew is a regular presenter on the AEC and previously had presented “AEC: Myths and Realities”. This is a new and updated presentation. It will focus on the present macro-economic picture from around ASEAN, the current status of the AEC, Thailand’s role in the AEC and will look at the future of the AEC given events over the last 18 months.
