The purpose of this training was to provide knowledge and understanding of ASSIST for ASEAN trade in services, which is established to allow ASEAN-based enterprises to lodge quiries or to interact with ASEAN Governments through ASEAN Secretariat regarding to intra-ASEAN cross-border trade in services.

Mr. Saysana SAYAKONE said that ASSIST was one of the activities under ASEAN blueprint and the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) that was initiated since 2015. This useful tool was officially launched at the 48th ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Meeting on 03rd August 2016, Lao PDR. At the beginning, it was available only to address cross-border issues related to trade in goods. However, ARISE Plus is supporting the expansion of  ASSIST to also covers trade in services and planned for an official launch during the 25th ASEAN Economic Ministers’ (AEM) Retreat in April, 2019.
