…..so many products..so many markets!!
If for a particular product, your competing supplier in any ASEAN market is a WTO member and is an LDC, then you need to consider that product under Priority sector for tariff reduction. Since the benefit that your country gets as LDC, you will get under RTA.
Since these are the sectors of import interest to your country, you will not require negotiating tariff duty reduction on these tariff lines with these markets.
Note: For products where the import growth has been very high from the ASEAN markets, you will like to keep it in negative/sensitive list.
