ARISE Plus is convening a series of outreach and training events across the region. The “ATR and ASSIST Outreach Event” for the Malaysian private sector was the seventh of these series. The objective of the ATR and ASSIST Outreach Events is to create greater awareness on the existence, functioning and trade facilitation benefits of the two primary trade facilitation instruments developed by ASEAN with support from ARISE Plus, known as ASSIST (for Trade in Goods and Trade in Services) and the ATR. This is deemed critical to showcase ASEAN’s increasing regulatory transparency in relation to trade in goods and build on it greater intra-ASEAN trade and trading opportunities. When the ATR is unable to address problems on the ground through transparency, ASSIST is then the primary and most cost-efficient tool of trade facilitation offered by ASEAN to address trade irritants and to identify solutions.
