Chapter 6 - Concluding Thoughts


The Member States of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) set themselves the ambitious aim of establishing a region-wide economic community by 2025. In striving to achieve this objective, this volume addressed a number of factors, internal to both ASEAN’s integration process and the region’s deepening ties with a dense layer of external economic partners, that lend support to the conclusion that service sector reforms, and trade and investment in services more particularly, will and must continue to occupy a place of choice in ASEAN collective efforts.
