The Ateneo Center for Economic Research and Development (ACERD) of the
Department of Economics would like to invite you to the lecture-discussion
*DR. JOSE L. TONGZON*
*Inha University, South Korea*
*ASEAN Single Shipping Market: Economic Opportunities and Challenges*
This will be on Friday, 4 December 2015, 4:30 – 6:00 pm, Department of
Economics Conference Room (Room 409 Leong Hall).
By next year the goal of establishing an ASEAN Single Shipping Market
(ASSM) will be implemented as one essential pillar for the realization of
the broader vision of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) blueprint.
Although there has been much discussion on the economic implications of AEC
at a macroeconomic level, so far only little attention has been made to its
economic implications at a sector level. This presentation will discuss the
concept of the ASSM and assess the economic opportunities it presents for
the Philippines particularly from the perspective of its trading community
and logistics service providers. It will also analyze the major barriers
and challenges facing the ASEAN countries in the implementation of their
liberalization commitments under the ASSM. The economic opportunities
presented and the barriers encountered will then raise the important issue
of how the Philippines can take advantage of the economic opportunities and
how the ASSM should be implemented to achieve the goal of establishing a
single shipping market.
*Dr. Jose L. Tongzon* is Professor of Logistics at Inha University, South
Korea, and has lived and practiced as a professional economist spanning
more than 30 years in various countries mainly in Australia, the
Philippines, Singapore and South Korea, in the field of international trade
policy, development economics and maritime logistics. Prior to this current
appointment, he was Associate Professor in Economics at the National
University of Singapore (NUS) from 1992 to 2006 and Chief Economist at the
Port of Melbourne Authority, Australia from 1988 to 1992.
