5. The large differences in the economic fundamentals among ASEAN Member States

The first motivation of this study is the attractiveness of ASEAN. If we consider four RTAs (NAFTA, EU28, MERCOSUR, and ASEAN), ASEAN has been becoming one of the most attractive FDI host regions. This can be shown by the increasing…
