FSI CC 2015-22: Why the Delay in the Free(r) Flow of Skilled Labor in ASEAN?

The Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRAs) are the only mechanism covering intra-ASEAN skilled labor mobility, but these MRAs exclusively focus on the movement of highly skilled workers and professionals leaving the bulk of workers uncovered. With this scenario, the said goal by year-end is least likely attainable; hence, ASEAN decided to delay deeper integration in the area of skilled labor mobility.
