Expand Your Business in Southeast Asia

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is an alliance of 10 countries with rich business environments:  Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. These countries comprise 630 million social media savvy consumers that drive demand in some of the fastest growing markets in the world. ASEAN welcomes U.S. companies and provides a wide range of opportunities plus the chance to tap the rapidly developing digital economy.

Learn About Market Opportunities in Southeast Asia

The U.S. Commercial Service Nashville staff will host Margaret Hanson-Muse, the Minister Counselor for Commercial Affairs for ASEAN, to discuss doing business in ten Southeast Asian countries. Ms. Hanson-Muse will cover the country profiles of these ten nations and discuss the top markets and best prospects for U.S. firms.  Top sectors for U.S. companies include Agribusiness, Aircraft (and parts), Automotive, Consulting, Consumer Goods, Defense, Education, Environmental Technology, Financial Services, Franchising, Healthcare, IT (including computer hardware and software), Manufacturing, Power Generation,  Renewable Energy, Telecommunications, Tourism, Transportation, and more. Join us to learn about how to successfully enter or grow your presence in these key markets and learn how the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement could improve market access for U.S. businesses.

Discuss Your Business with an Industry Expert from ASEAN

A limited number of one-on-one meetings with Ms. Hanson-Muse is available to seminar participants.  Once you register for the seminar via the link above, you may apply for a private meeting by contacting Andrew.Collier@trade.gov.
