The Export Council of Australia (ECA) in collaboration with Trade & Investment Queensland (TIQ) are delighted to present an event for prospective and established exporters who are looking to expand their business operations and connect into ASEAN.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), with a collective GDP of USD 2.5 trillion, a population exceeding 600 million, and a strategic location at the crossroads of Australia, China and India, is a AUD 100 billion trading market for Australia.
Increasing regional connectivity is gradually lowering what barriers remain to trade and investment in the region, and allows Australia to build on the already strong commercial foundation we have in place with ASEAN.
Given that ASEAN is sitting right on our doorstop and is a market of huge opportunity for Australia, NOW is the time for companies to capitalise on the business opportunities across the region!
