Resolving possible tensions in ASEAN's future trade: using "Analytic Hierarchy Process."(Association of Southeast Asian Nations)
A quantitative analysis using the Analytic Hierarchy Process reveals the possibility of a solution of future conflicts between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its main trading partners, Europe and the US. The conflict may arise due to different perceptions of some social and environmental issues. A cooperative approach among the ASEAN members to improving social and environmental standards is the most appropriate solution for avoiding conflicts with trading partners and for sustaining the future growth of trade.
