The Association of Southeast Asian Nations has launched the ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement: A Guidebook for Businesses and Investors (ACIA Guidebook).

The guidebook is the ASEAN investment legal instrument that entered into force last year to replace the Framework Agreement on the ASEAN Investment Area and the ASEAN Agreement for the Promotion and Protection of Investments and their respective amending protocols.

The paper aims to further enhance regional integration leading to the ASEAN Economic Community by 2015.

The ACIA Guidebook was launched at a forum on the “ASEAN Comprehensive Investment Agreement: Transforming Investment in ASEAN through ACIA” on March 21 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Nearly 250 people from the business sector attended the launch, including ASEAN government officials, the diplomatic community based in Kuala Lumpur, international organizations, academia, and the media.

The guidebook can be downloaded here.
