Event description

Description

ASEAN - Common Market, distinct strengths

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) provides a framework for standardising trade and business environments amongst ASEAN member economies, which collectively form a market of over 660 million people. While ASEAN is working towards a common market, its member countries are diverse and often have distinct strengths (for example, as a financial centre, logistics/distribution hub, manufacturing base, provider of ICT/web services provider ). This forum will explore how to maximise the benefits of the AEC to tap ASEAN’s surging consumer market, whilst leveraging the distinct strengths of ASEAN member countries.

The State of the Nation: ASEAN Roadshow

ASEAN embodies opportunity for agile Australian Businesses. In the lead up to the Australia-ASEAN Special Summit, Asialink Business is curating a series of national business forums to share the latest thinking on business and investment opportunities, contemporary market insights, and practical expertise.

The forums will bring together leading ASEAN business experts for an interactive discussion and first-hand perspectives on the pressing considerations for Australian businesses looking to understand, enter or grow in ASEAN’s diverse markets. Providing a deep-dive and fresh insights into some of the key opportunities for growth, the forums will explore themes including:

Understanding ASEAN’s changing consumers

Leveraging ASEAN’s common market

Innovation and the digital economy

International education: providing quality experiences to gain a competitive edge

Events in the series will also take place in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, with live streaming sites in Warrnambool and Townsville Region. All Australian businesses are invited to attend the forums in their location of choice.

Businesses can also participate in the discussion on social media and access a digital hub of ASEAN insights on the Asialink Business website (asialinkbusiness.com.au) including highlights from the events.
