Event Details

The New Zealand ASEAN Business Alliance is holding it's inaugural business conference in Bangkok, Thailand with the theme "Boosting Connectivity Across ASEAN". The Conference is designed to bring together NZ businesses from across ASEAN and NZ in one place, to experience workshops, keynote speakers, site visits and more.

What is the New Zealand ASEAN Business Alliance?

"Connecting SME's and Business People across the Region"

What is the New Zealand ASEAN Business Alliance or ABA?

The ABA is a network consisting of New Zealand Chambers or Business Associations in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, New Zealand, Philippines and Myanmar. The ABA provides reciprocal memberships rights to each partner chamber, so if you are a member of the ASEAN NZ Business Council, you have reciprocal membership to the other Chambers and Associations in the ABA.

Why is there an ABA?

New Zealand has very limited resources off-shore and the ABA provides the opportunity for these resources to be better connected, and co-ordinated. This in turn will build stronger connections for the New Zealand communities in-market, and provide established contacts for businesses.

Who can you contact to find out more?

The ABA will shortly launch a website www.nzaba.asia, which will provide contact details of the chambers in your country as well as member information and key projects and events. Alternatively, please contact the Secretariat based in the ASEAN NZ Business Council, Liz Bell on lbell@asean.org.nz
