The ASEAN Framework Agreement on Services (AFAS) was signed on 15 December 1995 by the ASEAN Economic Ministers, allowing for Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRA) in various professions and an agreement on the Movement of Natural Persons (MNP). AFAS provides guidelines for ASEAN Member Countries to progressively improve Market Access and to ensure equal National Treatment for services suppliers within ASEAN. ASEAN currently has MRAs that facilitate the mobility of professionals for six sectors, and framework agreements in place for two more: Engineering; Nursing; Architecture; Medicine; Dentistry; Tourism; Surveying (framework); and Accountancy (framework). More information on AFAS can be found HERE.

All members operating in these sectors or who engage with companies in these sectors may find some value in attending this event.
