ASEAN Launch a Guidebook for Businesses and Investors
05 April 2013

ASEAN launched the ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement: A Guidebook for Businesses and Investors (ACIA Guidebook) during the Forum on the ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement - Transforming Investment in ASEAN through ACIA (ACIA Forum).

The Forum was held to introduce ACIA, the ASEAN investment legal instrument which entered into force last year to replace the Framework Agreement on the ASEAN Investment Area (AIA Agreement) and the ASEAN Agreement for the Promotion and Protection of Investments (ASEAN IGA), and their respective amending Protocols, in order to further enhance regional integration to realise the vision of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by 2015. The Forum was attended by nearly 250 people from the business sector, ASEAN government officials, the diplomatic community based in Kuala Lumpur, international organisations, academia, and the media.

The launching of the publication was officiated by H.E. Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Malaysia, H.E. Datuk Noharuddin Nordin, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and H.E. Dr. Lim Hong Hin, Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for ASEAN Economic Community/
