Enormous Foam Material Market Opportunities in the Development of the “Belt and Road Initiative”
Market Opportunities in the Southeast Asia Region

The comprehensive implementation of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) has brought several policy dividends in terms of e-commerce development, tariff reduction, customs clearance procedures, and more, which marks a milestone against the backdrop of the current counter-flow of globalization and the reshaping of the global industrial chain. The first quarter of 2023 saw strong resilience in Southeast Asian venture capital despite the impact of global macroeconomic downturn, with 146 transactions totaling $1.53 billion in investment. RCEP is expected to inject a strong stimulant into regional trade liberalization, investment facilitation, and global economic development.
