With ASEAN set to become the world’s sixth largest automotive market by 2018, and regional sales likely to double in the near future, the Automotive industry is a key player in the economic development of the region.


In that context, the European automotive industry with its long experience, significant regional investments and leading innovative technology, has a keen interest in the continuing growth of the sector in ASEAN.


The EU-ABC has established an Automotive Advocacy Group to look at a series of pan-ASEAN initiatives aimed at aligning the policies, rules and regulations affecting the industry in the region with accepted international norms, and ensuring a fair and equitable market across ASEAN for manufacturers and suppliers alike.
