ASEAN Secretariat - Scoping Study of Outsourcing in ASEAN - 2014

Countries Involved:

Ten ASEAN member states.

Project Description:

The project conducted an assessment of the ASEAN regional production network and ASEAN’s role in the global supply chain. It involved:

a)   a stock take and a characterisation of the offshoring/outsourcing activities in the region;

b)   an assessment of the trends and developments in outsourcing both in goods and services within and outside the region, particularly in developed countries as well as in the BRICS countries.

This consulting opportunity was to support these activities with the overall goal of enhancing ASEAN’s approach/strategy towards the creation of a single market and production area and a strong presence in the global supply chain, as well as increasing the role of small and medium enterprises in the regional production process.
