Based on the final report of the Services Design Study supported during the transition period, the Services Diagnostic and Needs Assessment Study began in September 2010 and was completed in November 2011. The study assessed needs across all ASEAN Member States in four of the five AEC priority liberalisation sectors: air transport, e-ASEAN, healthcare and tourism. These were examined with reference to a range of important cross-cutting issues: competitiveness/productivity, institutional/regulatory, human resources, market constraints, adjustment costs and enterprise efficiencies. Using a network of in-country experts, fieldwork was conducted in each of the ASEAN Member States. Following conclusion of the fieldwork recommendations for follow-on activities were identified and presented in the final report. A number of project recommendations are now being implemented through AADCP II.
