Within ASEAN, barriers to trade in goods and services are falling and tax rates on international transactions are dropping. These two developments can fuel your regional growth and support expansion plans. However, these opportunities can also turn into threats as your competitors from other countries use these same factors to enter your territory and take market share.
Our speaker, Jude Ocampo, helped listeners to understand the factors that are leading to the steady regionalization of business in ASEAN and widen the scope of context including the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement, the ASEAN Services Framework, ASEAN’s tax treaty network and updates on changing tax regimes in ASEAN.
