With the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) 2015 firmly in place, the authorities in Southeast Asia now have their eyes on the next milestone: the blueprint for ASEAN 2025. The ASEAN Secretariat published its Consolidated Strategic Action Plan (CSAP) in February. The AEC 2015 did not live up to its promises, and duties on apparel and textiles are already eliminated for most qualifying trade within ASEAN. So, what value will the CSAP hold for the fashion industry? Will it lead to full implementation of the trade facilitation commitments of AEC 2015? Will it create new opportunities for trading across the ASEANborders? Or, is it a document full of good intentions that will not have any major impact on trade in practice?
