Chapter 2: Women’s entrepreneurship within the ASEAN Economic Community: challenges and opportunities
This study examines the inherent challenges that women entrepreneurs face within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. We provide cross-country comparisons as well as comparisons with global benchmarks. Heterogeneous contexts result in the need for focused solutions, which provide more effective policy-making strategies to support the different ecosystems for economic growth of women entrepreneurs. In addition, we strive to put forward recommendations based on global practices or benchmarks but modified to reflect ASEAN’s regional values, stemming from family, religion and embedded traditions.
