The three broader groups of stakeholders; namely Intra-ASEAN, ASEAN and Dialogue Partners and ASEAN in the Global Economy.

These stakeholders have their respective aligned agendas and interests in the AEC integration will encompass both the private and public sectors, members of the media, academia and observers of the AEC integration.





LTB and Plenary

The NAF programme is structured around six Lifting-the-Barriers (LTB) Roundtables that focus on six sectors in ASEAN. Three main plenary sessions will draw the entire forum together around major topics
The Forum also holds interactive sessions on emerging trends and new perspectives affecting the ASEAN community.

The outcome of the discourse will be reflected in reports on policy recommendations made by the LTB Roundtables.

Phase I of the LTB Initiative involves core research and compilation of qualitative and quantitative responses as surveyed from within each of the six business sectors. The outcome of Phase I are the six sector-based Preliminary Papers, intended to spark discussion at the LTB roundtables during the ABC Forum. CARI’s Research Working Committee and its Strategic Advisors worked closely with each of the six nominated Research Partners in generating the necessary material for these reports. This collaboration, led by CARI, represented the top management consulting firms, academic institutions and regional business sector leaders to provide insight for this effort.

The NAF has a special focus on identifying bottlenecks and barriers hindering free trade of prioritised sectors in the context of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

The event convenes around six sector-based “Lifting-the-Barriers Roundtables” with vertical emphasis on issues specific to the selected sectors. The roundtables serve as a platform for different stakeholders to deliberate on the future of their sector and our ASEAN region as a whole. Participants of this discussion include regulators, private sector leaders, service providers, manufacturers, academics and many more. The selection of discussants aimed to provide a well rounded and truly reflective debate.

The third phase of the Lifting-The-Barriers(LTB) Initiative will be the consolidation of all research and discussion materials from Phase I and Phase II. The aims and objectives of the ABC Forum is to provide a platform for private and public sector to come together and align their agendas in the common theme of ASEAN integration. We at CARI envision this to be done by means of a set of white papers which will be submitted to the relevant ASEAN ministers or policy makers to effect real change in the region.
