ASEAN as a trade bloc is one of the top 5 economies in the world, with its GDP set to exceed US$4tn by 20251. Current exports total US$1.3tn, with forecasts predicting exports to rise to US$2.8tn by 2025, making ASEAN the world's fastest-growing trade bloc2, and is in the centre of the world’s largest free trade agreements including CPTPP and RCEP.
ASEAN is the largest digitally enabled population in the world with its eCommerce forecasted to grow to US$88 billion by 2025. In 2020 alone, 40 million people in Southeast Asia came online for the first time3.
ASEAN is one of the most susceptible regions in the world to climate risk and people are taking note; 58% of ASEAN issuers say environmental and social issues are very important to their organisation, one of the highest percentages among issuers globally4.
