Extract

This part focuses on three of the main characteristics of ACIA that are centrally important for businesses and investors: the liberalisation of investment restrictions; the protection of investors and the protection of their investments. The settlement of investment disputes which complements the ACIA regime on foreign investment is discussed in Part IV. Investment liberalisation in ACIA responds to the needs of businesses looking to expand across national frontiers. Intra-ASEAN liberalisation facilitates the efficient deployment of capital within ASEAN.
