If the country of the exporter (or importer):

A) Has a Free Trade Agreements (FTA) in force with some country of Southeast Asia:

The exporter must take advantages of the agreement (tariff reductions, rules and certificate of origin, technical standards, foreign direct investment (FDI), Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), public procurement, trade in services...) however, also need to know if other countries may have an agreement in force with one of these countries.

b) Has not agreement in force with any country in Southeast Asia:

One possible scenario is that another country (or region) can have some Agreement in force with countries of Southeast Asia. Then, the exporter has a disadvantage.

All these factors are essential to design and adapt the international marketing strategy for each target market in Southeast Asia.
