More micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) can use a trade portal to enhance market access in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region and other countries to expand their businesses.
The ASEAN Access website cited important things to consider when trading goods and services internationally which include foreign trade agreements; customs; rules of origin; export controls; certifications, product/technical standards, health and safety rules; visa and any requirements ensuing from the form of services provision.
“For trade regulations and market information, check your product classification, tariffs, customs laws and regulations,” it said.
The website https://www.aseanaccess.com/ said several comprehensive international events and trade fairs, matchmaking events and business opportunities databases are also available.
“All (of these) with slightly different user functions, but a wide variety of international events to choose from. Many events are taking place virtually,” it said.
All registered members of ASEAN Access can participate in any webinar, panel discussion and networking session, and all business matchmaking events that it organized through its ASEAN Access Match platform. – Press release
