Doing Business in Southeast Asia

A Guide for Canadian Exporters and Investors

Doing Business in Southeast Asia

Doing Business in Southeast Asia can help Canadian companies consider opportunities in the ten member countries of ASEAN, in the Southeast Asia region: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma (Myanmar), the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

EDC has declared Southeast Asia to be a high-priority strategic region, where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the next several years. With rich natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and ASEAN’s Free Trade Agreement, the region’s wealth of markets and opportunities are especially attractive for Canadian direct investment and trade in infrastructure, oil and gas, mining, agri-food, and information and communications technology.

This guide covers:

  • Opportunities in each of the ten member countries
  • The investment environment
  • How to establish your presence
  • Finances and taxation
  • Legalities
