Description of the Online Course: 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 the deeper economic integration of the ASEAN economies towards the achievement of the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015.

The Agreement on Common Effective Preferential Tariff Scheme for the ASEAN Free-Trade Area needs that tariff rates levied on a huge range of foreign trade of export 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 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 intra-regional trade to 5% for all export products to the “Inclusion list” or removed them in total.

The member economies of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) should eliminate import duties on all export products traded between them by 2010 for the ASEAN-6 and by 2015, with flexibility to 2018, for CLMV (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.).

  1. ASEAN-6: Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand
  2. CLMV: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam

For ASEAN-6, by 1 January 2009 (Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand)

  1. Import duties of at least 80% tariff lines are eliminated
  2. Import duties on all Information and Communications Technology (ICT) products, as defined in the e-ASEAN Framework Agreement, are removed
  3. Import duties on all Priority Integration Sectors products are at 0%
  4. Import duties on all goods are equal to or less than 5%

For Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam, import duties on all products are equal to or less than 5% by 2009.

For Cambodia, import duties of at least 80% tariff lines are equal to or less than 5% by 2009.
