Sample: ASEAN Free-Trade Area (AFTA)
Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Free-Trade Area

Description: ASEAN Free-Trade Area (AFTA)

The objective of the ASEAN Free-Trade Area is to reach free trade in products in the ASEAN Region to create a single market and production base for a deeper economic integration of the ASEAN economies towards the ASEAN Economic Community achievement by 2015.

The Agreement on Common Effective Preferential Tariff Scheme for the ASEAN Free-Trade Area needs that the tariff rates levied on a huge range of foreign trade of products within the ASEAN Region be reduced to 5%.

Most of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region is a free-trade area. Accounting for 96% of all the international trade of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the first six signatories of the Common Effective Preferential Tariff Scheme for the ASEAN Free-Trade Area (AFTA) have reduced their custom tariffs on the intra-regional trade to 5% for all the export products to the “Inclusion list” or removed them in total.
