Much has been said about the AEC (Asean Economic Community) and its far-reaching implications for Thailand.

Jakarta, 9 December 2013 – The majority of businesses perceived ASEAN economic integration to present more of an opportunity rather than a threat. In addition, investor interest in the ASEAN region remains strong and more businesses are seeing ASEAN as one region in making their investment decisions. These are some of the key findings from the 2013 ASEAN-BAC (ASEAN Business Advisory Council) Survey on ASEAN Competitiveness as ASEAN pushes on with its efforts to realize the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by the end of 2015.
