The China-ASEAN Free Trade Area. Transferring the Halfhearted Evidence

  • Ioana-Bianca Berna

Registered author(s):

    The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, founded in 1967, as the organism representative for Southeast Asia, encompassing all the territorially affixed countries, minus East Timor, has always seen China`s loom of the region as mutually dependent on its politics. ASEAN is not simple, nor complicated in structure. Perhaps, this is the main reason why ASEAN and China decided to format an economic agreement, surmounting all inter-regional trade barriers. Thus, a simple structure was assigned the initial value of contemplation. Throughout this article, we will try to bring into light an unwrapping of the good and of the detrimental aspects and innuendoes of the China-ASEAN Free trade Area, by laying open personal streaming of the subject and by bringing down the obviousness of arguments of either side.
