This Design Study was concluded in December 2009. It included fieldwork undertaken in Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam as well as at ASEC in Jakarta. The study found that the ASEAN Framework Agreement on Services commitments in liberalisation have been progressive and may not have reached unilateral liberalising levels in some instances. It identified a number of key cross-cutting issues as well as key sub-sectors. The report recommended a full Services Diagnostic and Needs Assessment Study be undertaken (refer Project 3).
