ASEAN Excise Reform

Prof David Widdowson and A/Prof Rob Preece from CCES are currently involved in research into opportunities for the ASEAN Economic Community to become a leading automobile production centre. Specifically, they are exploring ways in which reforms of automobile excise taxes in ASEAN may lead to regional production growth and pro-environment outcomes.

The research scope includes the use of excise reform to help to create a single regional production base for the auto sector, create a single market which all auto makers can access, reduce and/or eliminate non-tariff barriers, and establish ASEAN as a globally competitive supplier of automobiles and a centre of investment in automobile production. The research is due for completion by the end of 2015.
