As we are in the middle of 2015, the year AEC is scheduled to be completed, we will focus on Cambodia. Additionally, we look at how far the ten countries of ASEAN have advanced towards the goal of integration.

However much the media and officials mention the AEC, its meaning remains cryptic to many. On top of that, ASEAN member states greatly differ culturally and economically. Specific aspects and the importance of the integration differs from country to country.

With the help of ASEAN experts, including optimists and skeptics, Post Plus will assess the most important points on the ASEAN agenda from Cambodia’s point of view and analyze challenges and opportunities for the Kingdom.

Addressing the most important aspects of the ASEAN integration for Cambodia, Post Plus will look deeper into:

• Shareholders in ASEAN Trade within and outside ASEAN borders

• Access to finance Growth strategies for Cambodian companies

• Infrastructure development

• Education and transfer of knowledge

• The labour market and labour migration

• Laws and regulations

• National and regional tourism

• Product and production standards

• Agriculture and the environment

To produce the most relevant and interesting content, Post Plus is calling for experts from both the private and the public sector.

If you have an interesting opinion and educated perspective, we welcome your contributions to our supplement!
