Workshop on Self-Certification of ASEAN Product Origin

Man speaking at podium. (Mission Image)Yangon – Around 60 participants attended a two-day workshop in Yangon, Myanmar on November 12 – 13 to better understand ASEAN’s program for self-certification of product origin. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of the proposed self-certification scheme and the institutions required to make the system work. The workshop was especially beneficial for Burmese participants as they were able to learn about the operation and monitoring process in other ASEAN countries such as Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. The U.S. and Australia also shared their experience in implementing and enforcing their self-certification schemes.
