EU-ASEAN trade

Invitation February 27th - Prospects for EU-ASEAN Trade

16 February 2018

The 600m strong ASEAN community has become the centre of a global tug of war on trade. As the US under Trump retreats from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), China is stepping up its engagement through the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) while Japan and India are both strengthening their relations with ASEAN.

The EU has decided to go down the bilateral route, signing deals with Singapore and Vietnam, while still open to a possible bloc to bloc FTA. Talks with Thailand could restart as soon as there is a restoration of democratic rule. The EU, however, is caught between the business imperatives of seeking new trade deals and the reversal of democratic progress and human rights in some ASEAN members. In addition there are serious concerns about the EU’s ratification of the Singapore and Vietnam deals.

Polluting factories count but there is no measure for sustainability or a clean environment.
