ESSAY ANSWER

QUESTION;
ln what ways have the ASEAN member countries benefited from the
ASEAN Economic Cooperation programme?

ANSWER

ASEAN Member Countries have benefited in several ways under the ASEAN
Economic Programme.
o First, the ASEAN Free Trade Area allows all l\4ember Countries
to take advantage of the economies of scale.
. The lower. tariffs under the Common Effective preferential
Tariffs Scheme reduce production costs and stimulate
productivity and efficiency especially in the manufacturing
sector.
. This leads to greater industrjal development in all Member
Countries because with the liberalisation of trade, ASEAN
region gets a bigger market, attracts foreign investment
and
thus, stjmulates supporting industries jncluding service
industry.
. lvlember Countries also benefit from the ASEAN economic
cooperation and integratjon in the development of energy,
transport and communjcation infrastructure, and the broadband
interconnectivity in the communication services.
. Under the e-commerce programme, lvlember Countries
benefit
from the development of information infrastructure and
the
building of core competencies to in the global
compete
information economy, while narrowing the digital divide
with
advanced countries.
. Member Countries also benefit from the ASEAN promotion of
production and trade in the agriculture and forestry products,
which support their competitiveness in the intra ASEAN trade.
