Trade Barriers And Asean Integration

SEATA seeks to advocate for customs and trade regimes that recognize the scientifically-backed international safety norms and import processes to allow for unfettered and non-discriminatory access to world-class play materials to children across the region.

High tariffs, burdensome import procedures, and market-specific standards can hamper the movement of safe, responsibly-made toys. SEATA strives to collaborate with stakeholders to mitigate these challenges and ensure consumers in Southeast Asia have access to quality toys.
