About this event
Southeast Asia is a region where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. With a wealth of natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and a regional Free Trade Agreement, the great diversity of markets and opportunities are attractive across a wide range of sectors.
Attending experts are all Executive Directors of the British Chambers of Commerce and they bring more than 100 years of knowledge and expertise between them. Their one-to-one advice will be specific to your business needs and they will assess your readiness to export and showcase business opportunities within these exciting, vibrant and growing markets of ASEAN.
You will also have the opportunity to network with a range of like-minded companies looking to break into the market/s in Southeast Asia and share your experiences. Refreshments will be also provided.

Steady growth combined with investor-friendly government policies has attracted businesses keen to explore the vibrant new domestic markets that are emerging. Entrepreneurs are seizing the opportunity. Southeast Asia’s economic dynamism is substantially enhancing the buying power of a growing middle class that is driving new consumer demands for many products.
By 2030, Southeast Asia’s economy is predicted to eclipse Japan’s and be the world’s 4th largest ‘single market’ after the EU, US and China. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) predicts that the size of the middle class in emerging Asia will increase from 24% of the population in 2010 to 65% in 2030. All of this leads to a ‘Community of Opportunities’.
Southeast Asia is comprised of markets with diverse socio-cultural differences as well as different legal and regulatory environments but all offer opportunities for UK exporters and investors in practically every sector.
