The AICO Scheme is the latest industrial cooperation program in ASEAN superseded the ASEAN Industrial Joint Ventures (AIJV) and the Brand to Brand Complementation (BBC) Schemes. Signed on April 27, 1996 during the ASEAN Economic Minister Meeting in Singapore and entering into force on November 1, 1996, the Scheme seeks to promote the sharing of industrial activities between ASEAN-based companies. A minimum of two companies in two different ASEAN countries are required to form an AICO Arrangement. The AICO Scheme offers 0-5% preferential tariff rate. This preferential tariff rate is applicable to all products identified in the approved AICO arrangements. This would mean, all intermediate products and/or raw materials required in the manufacture of an AICO Final Products itself are entitled to the preferential tariff rates. The preferential tariff rates are exclusive and applicable only to the approved participating companies, products and countries.

Objectives of the AICO Scheme Improvement of the competitive position of ASEAN companies in the global and ASEAN markets by providing the means to apply the principles of economies of scale and scope in the manufacturing process. Supported by preferential import duties to enhance across ASEAN border transactions. Stimulation of intra and extra-ASEAN investment through complementation of industrial activities and networking as well as the improvement of the overall trade and investment prospects in ASEAN. Enlargement of the ASEAN market by utilizing complementary and improved intra ASEAN linkages.

AICO Arrangement It is a cooperative arrangement involving a minimum of two participating companies from two different ASEAN countries. An AICO Arrangement involves not only the physical movement of products between the participating companies and countries but also resource sharing, industrial complementation or other industrial cooperation activities.

Manufacturing companies that belong to the same group of companies or are administered by the same principal can apply to form intra-firm AICO arrangement AICO Final Products among themselves to exchange products that they specialize in.

For companies that cannot meet the equity condition, a waiver is possible if the proposing company meets other criteria imposed by the participating country in lieu of the 30% national equity. To make the AICO more attractive, the 30% equity requirement is automatically waived during the two-year period of 1999-2000.
