ASEAN countries collectively represent one of the most dynamic economies in the world. With a population of ∼600 million people (i.e., 9% of the world population), and a combined GDP of $1.8 trillion, the ASEAN
For a long period, Southeast Asian economies have been export-oriented, mostly to Europe and North America. To earn foreign exchanges and speed their economic growth, ASEAN countries have moved to combine foreign and national capital to promote indigenous industrial development and native economic growth. For this purpose, ASEAN countries have set up enormous foreign investment incentives to attract foreign capital and enacted related foreign investment regulations many times to catch more foreign investors’ eyes. However, the dissimilar economic developmental levels and the different political backgrounds, ASEAN countries have varied investment environment and regulations. Since both the formation of ASEAN and ASEAN members themselves are more focused on attracting foreign investment, one may ask what differences of foreign investment environment and regulations ASEAN member states have? The article hopes to analyze ASEAN member’s investment environment and selected members’ investment regulations in order to examine the interactions between national developmental demands and foreign investment regulations through a comparative study of ASEAN member states’ laws on foreign investment.

Within the framework of ASEAN-ARBC Biodiversity Program the hitherto unknown bryophyte flora of Vu Quang Nature Reserve in north central Vietnam was studied by the authors together with Prof. Benito C. Tan. From the lower vegetational belts 41 liverwort taxa were distinguished, of which Cheilolejeunea streimannii and Cololejeunea vuquangensis are new to science, 8 taxa are new to the whole Indochina or to Asia, while further 4 are new to the bryoflora of Vietnam. An analysis of distribution patterns shows the relative high proportion of endemics and the dominancy of Southeast Asian and of Indomalesian elements in the hepatic flora. Further investigations are needed to reveal the characters of the bryoflora in the montane forest belts at higher altitudes.
