Learn more about trading with the ASEAN markets at a free seminar on 25 June 2013

Do you want to learn more about trading with the ASEAN markets? Where is ASEAN? Come to a free seminar and find out.  Sofitel Hotel, 25 June, 4pm.

The Association of South East Nations (ASEAN) is made up of Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Burma, Philippines, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos. New direct routes have been recently opened at London Gatwick to Vietnam and Indonesia opening up these attractive markets with ever growing purchasing power, and inward investment opportunities to the UK. We are delighted to welcome His Excellency Teuku Mohammad Hamzah Thayeb, Ambassador of Indonesia to the UK, as Speaker and Guest of Honour.

This FREE seminar provides a unique opportunity for SMEs to find out about doing business in Indonesia and other ASEAN markets.

By 2030 the ASEAN economy is predicted to eclipse Japan’s, and be the 4th largest single market. The GDP of ASEAN markets are over $2 trillion, growing at over 5% and the UK already exports in excess of $15 billion to the region. Key sectors of opportunity include infrastructure, healthcare, education, and energy, creative and digital industries.
