“The development of the ASEAN Trade Repository and ASSIST is warmly welcomed by the EU-ASEAN Business Council and its members. We see this as vital step in increasing transparency to barriers to trade in ASEAN and therefore a key tool in helping ASEAN achieve its stated aims of reducing the number of non-tariff barriers to trade in the region. We believe that all of industry in the region should get behind this initiative”. Chris Humphrey – Executive Director EU-ASEAN Business Council.
