The ASSIST support team is pleased to inform you that ASSIST is now ‘open for business’ and can be used by ASEAN-based enterprises to lodge complaints in relation to intra-ASEAN cross-border trade issues. ASSIST provides a significant opportunity for Business Representative Organisations to help their members to seek solutions to the constraints or problems they are facing when trading within ASEAN. 
 
You are cordially invited to visit the ASSIST website, which will provide you with all the information that you may require.
 
ASSIST will initially be available to address cross-border problems with regard to trade in goods only. It will then be extended to trade in services and investment issues as soon as possible. A set of ‘frequently asked questions and answers (FAQs)’ on ASSIST are also available, and these are attached for your guidance. They can also be found on the ASSIST website. 
 
Please do take advantage of this important ASEAN trade facilitation tool, as it is only your use which will make it a success. Should you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact them at the following e-mail address: arise@asean.org
