Description of the Sub-Subject: Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the ASEAN

The goal of the ASEAN Economic Community is to set up the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as a single market and production base that will make the ASEAN Region more dynamic and competitive.

One of the core factors of the ASEAN single market and production base is the free flow of foreign direct investment.

A free and open foreign direct investment regime are fundamental to improving the ASEAN's competitiveness and attracting foreign direct investment as well as intra-ASEAN Foreign direct investment (FDI).

On February 2009, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Exhaustive Investment Agreement was signed.
