The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), which is to be established by the end of 2015, will create a common market of 600 million people and substantially boost trade and environment flows in the region. It will also have an impact on the economic and commercial relations between the ASEAN countries, on the one hand, and their existing trade and investment partners in Asia on the other. The emergence of ASEAN as a large integrated economy will also impinge on the trade and investment flows among other Asian countries and customs territories and will affect the operation of supply chains in these countries.
The main objective of the study will be to analyse implementation of the AEC and to assess its likely impact on the Asia Pacific supply chains, with particular reference to trade and investment relations between India and Taiwan.
