ASEAN moves further towards a single aviation market

As the three-day 25th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Senior Transport Officials Meeting (STOM) reached its conclusion in Lapulapu City, Cebu, on 29 May 2008 the Philippine Information Agency announced that ASEAN senior transport officials had agreed to recommend signing the ASEAN Multilateral Agreement on the Full Liberalization of Air Freight Services and Air Services.

The senior transport officials among the 10-member ASEAN nations will endorse the signing of the ASEAN multilateral agreement to the ASEAN transport leaders who will be meeting during the 14th ASEAN Transport Ministers (ATM) Meeting in November 2008 in Manila in time for the implementation of the regional integrated air transport services by December 2008.

The reported aim is to have a single aviation market for ASEAN by 2015.
