Tuesday, September 8 | Key fiscal and tax incentives in ASEAN and India (10 am ET)

In this webcast, panelists discuss the fiscal and tax incentives, as well as location aspects, of investing in ASEAN and India.

Geopolitical and trade developments in the last 12 to 18 months have prompted many multinational enterprises (MNEs) to set up manufacturing alternatives in ASEAN/India. Global trade has been further impacted by the COVID-19 crisis with disruptions in supply chains, which has highlighted the risk of being dependent on centralized manufacturing. There is now a widespread emphasis among MNEs on de-risking their supply chains and considering diversification.

Governments in ASEAN and India have been mapping these developments closely and have undertaken series of measures to incentivize new investments/ expansions. In addition, there are new measures to further promote investments in certain sectors.
