posted on 2014-05-02, 00:00 authored by Michael Smith
This Report of the AANZFTA “Enhancing ASEAN Logistics Services” event held in Cebu, Philippines, 28 April – 2 May, 2014 is a summarised version of the wide-ranging conference presentations, discussions and seminar work conducted by delegates and organisers over an intensive five day period. Logistics services are a critical part of supply chain competency for partners in the ASEANAustralia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement. They “deliver” for each economy in the Region and they are critical to the social wellbeing of communities across the Region. Logistics services are a growing sector and as we have learned, will continue to expand as trade between regions advances. This event has highlighted much more than the disparities between the member countries in terms of infrastructure, institutional settings, legal and regulatory frameworks and human capacities in which goods and people are moved; it highlights the commonality of issues and
themes on which real progress can be made. This event has shed further light on what initiatives might be most feasible, reasonable and practical at the AANZFTA, ASEAN and individual country level to lower costs and lift
performance in supply of logistics services. The organisers wish to thank the presenters, hosts and delegates for their active and constructive involvement.
