When the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is implemented in 2015, not only commodities and services will move freely within the region but also other products, including manpower. In this case, we must prepare ourself to improve the quality of its human skills, so that it would not serve as a mere market for other countries in the region. It should also become a big exporter of skilled workers. To allow equal and fair movement of manpower within the region, ASEAN needs to have commitment to prepare human resources. Therefore, standardization of human resources` competence should soon be prepared to shape the future of ASEAN in the face of globalized world. All ASEAN members should prepare skills, expertise and work competence standards.
