ASEAN Consumer Empowerment Index (ACEI) 2020

The ASEAN Consumer Empowerment Index (ACEI) is a key initiative under the ASEAN Strategic Action Plan on Consumer Protection (ASAPCP) 2016-2025, aimed at gauging the level of awareness and competence of consumers across all ASEAN Member States (AMS), as well as their perceptions/behaviours on a number of issues including fundamental consumer rights and critical concerns. The ACEI is intended to form the evidence base for the development of appropriate consumer protection policies as well as effective law implementation in each AMS and across the region.
