beko expands in Southeast Asia
beko, the well-known brand from the Turkish firm of ARCELIK is now also expanding its market position in the most important countries of Southeast Asia. In particular, the refrigerators of this brand have long been among Europe’s market leaders and are known for their high quality and excellent service.
The Sanet ASEAN ADVISORS supported the company in Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam with essential market studies and recommendations based on them.

TPP FREE TRADE AGREEMENT
ASEAN countries become even more attractive for manufacturers
The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is already the world’s free-trade hub, from which goods produced in the community can be exported for the most part duty-free to 2.3 billion consumers.
With the completion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei are once more making themselves vastly more attractive. Among other countries the agreement covers free trade with the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Australia and New Zealand. As a result, the duty-free coverage of the participating states from the AEC has increased to around 3 billion consumers with an additional high purchasing power.
The advantages of double taxation agreements within the TPP partners must be added to this.
As a leading economic power in Southeast Asia, Thailand assessed the agreement as detrimental and is not participating. As a result it therefore unfortunately loses a bit in its attractiveness to manufacturing investors in the internal ASEAN competition.
Products manufactured in the modern industrial parks of Vietnam can now also enter the USA free of import duty.
ROUND TABLE IN SINGAPORE
Sanet provides information at the German Centre Singapore
In recent weeks ASEAN INTERN has reported on the necessity of a uniform sales strategy for the ASEAN countries. At the invitation of CEO Hanna Böhme there will now be an information event at the German Centre in Singapore
at 15:30 on 3 December 2015
aimed at increasing corporate presence within the major economies in the region. In a round-table discussion the representatives of Sanet ASEAN ADVISORS, Nguy Xuan Anh (Vietnam) and Dr. Gunter Denk (Thailand) will describe legal and practical ways to build up a sales organisation in an expensive way.
Particularly interesting reports on how to put this into practice will be provided by Markus Hauer (DELO) and Otmar Schenk-Weier (SAMES KREMLIN), who have themselves organised their sales operations in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and other ASEAN countries from Singapore and partly in cooperation with SANET.
