An additional 24 categories of services will be open this year to greater Asean investment under the Asean Framework Agreement on Services (AFAS), which aims to reduce investment barriers in the service sector.
The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) gave the green light last week for the country to sign an agreement on the services sector at next mont’s Asean Economic Ministers (AEM) meeting in Myanmar.
The services include ship repair, international law consulting, accounting, ship and cruise rental, online information providers and crosss-ocean transporation.
