Ho Chi Minh City, 29th May 2014 - ASEAN Big Data is launched to provide public users with most up-to-date information on macro-economic indicators driving ASEAN economies of 11 countries in South East Asia. These indicators relate to country’s GDP, CPI, Trade, Manufacturing and Labor information. We created this website to help global investors, economists, business leaders venturing into ASEAN to have most relevant, visualised and up-to-date information available at the tip of their fingers, also allowing to benchmark among indicators and markets. ASEAN Big Data refers to official data sources and our data is regularly checked for inconsistencies. With the support of Metrix ® technology, public users can interact, control indicators and countries to benchmark at their choice. ASEAN Big Data is created by CEL Consulting, an advisory ﬁrm specialized in supply chain and operations consulting in emerging economies of Southeast Asia. Present in Vietnam for over 10 years, CEL consultants have helped investors and companies alike in making investment decisions, by performing industry-specific competitive analysis of ASEAN economies in terms of supply chain and operations.

The South East Asian regional integration creates a competitive market of over 600 million people with a combined gross domestic product (GDP) of US $ 2.1 trillion, solid growth, low manufacturing costs and a rising middle class, hungry for the consumer experience in ASEAN countries: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is expected these trends to be amplified when the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) comes into existence in the coming years, effectively creating one of the world’s biggest single markets. There will be free flow of goods, services, investment capital and skilled labor following the liberalization. These will include tariff reductions and streamlining of certain administrative procedures. Part of South East Asia’s attraction is the range of opportunities it offers, both as manufacturing base and market. ASEAN spans the spectrum from Singapore, a financial and high-tech industrial hub with a higher GDP per capita than Switzerland, through the established offshore manufacturing centres of Thailand and Malaysia, via the newly industrialised economies of Vietnam and Cambodia, to the natural resources of Indonesia and the raw potential of Myanmar. But the heart of Southeast Asia’s potential lies in the middle class, both as consumers and as a source of highly educated, high-productivity labour.
With the creation of ASEAN Big Data, it is now much easier simpler to access the most up-to-date macro-economic indicators of ASEAN economies: www.aseanbigdata.com
