The UK-ASEAN Business Council are delighted to invite you to Gloucestershire City Museum on the 22nd April, where Richard Graham MP, along with Business West’s Gloucestershire International Network (GIN) will update you on one of the world’s most dynamic markets – ASEAN.
Why you should consider the ASEAN markets:
ASEAN is the world’s 7th largest ‘economy’ and by 2030 it is predicted to eclipse Japan’s and be the world’s 4th largest ‘single market’ after the EU, US and China. ASEAN is home to more people than Europe (506m), it has the world’s third largest labour force and it has an average growth rate of 5%.
Who should attend?
We invite local businesses who are currently exporting or interested to trade with the ASEAN markets such as Brunei, Cambodia, Loas, Myanmar, Philippines and Thailand.
What will you learn?
Join us for a comprehensive ASEAN business update. Following the seminar there will be an opportunity to build those key connections over coffee with fellow exporters and speakers.
With ASEAN’s demand for high quality, innovative goods and services – ‘Brand Britain’ has never been stronger in the region, so now is the time for more UK companies to position themselves to play a key role in what is being dubbed – the ‘Asian Century’.
