Impact of Policies Shaping ASEAN Healthcare—Outlook till 2020

Impact of Policies Shaping ASEAN Healthcare—Outlook till 2020

Impact of Policy making in ASEAN

The policies in the ASEAN nations are directed toward creating a single ASEAN market. Although this will be achieved through national initiatives that allow increased competition among the member nations’ markets, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large local corporations will need to drive the initiatives. Frost & Sullivan believes the opportunities provided by the initiatives can spur market growth and diversification. The opportunities will still not be equal among the countries, as each member nation will still decide which of its own market sectors it will open up or protect. Nevertheless, the reduction of entry barriers and business facilitation across borders promoting intra-ASEAN trade and expansion are reshaping the ASEAN healthcare market environment creating unique environments that allow different stakeholders to thrive.
