​The region of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, ASEAN, which associates member states such as Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, is becoming more and more popular among European companies as an alternative or additional investment location besides China and India.

The declared objective to create a single market with over 600 million residents, i.e. the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), is continuously being pursued. In addition to the free movement of goods – which has already been largely established with the introduction of preferential customs duties for most product groups - the free movement of capital and services as well as the free movement of workers are supposed to be gradually increased as well.

Located at our offices in ASEAN, multilingual experts specialising in foreign investments in the region team up to offer you comprehensive assistance with regard to all issues relating to law, taxation, business process outsourcing and auditing.
