Description

The Britain in South East Asia (BISEA) Roadshow is coming to London on 5 May 2018.

BiSEA, in co-operation with the UK-ASEAN Business Council, DIT, CBI, and Chamber partners would like to invite you to meet the representatives of Britchams to discuss export opportunities in each country for a 1-2-1 meeting with experts from the following markets (20 minutes each):

  • Indonesia – Chris Wren Executive Director, British Chamber of Commerce Indonesia

  • Malaysia – Sridaran Sabapathy, Head of Trade, British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce

  • Singapore - Olivia Widen – Executive Director, British Chamber of Commerce Singapore

  • Thailand - Greg Watkins - Executive Director, British Chamber of Commerce Thailand

  • Vietnam - Peter Rimmer - Executive Director, British Business Group Vietnam

South East Asia is a region where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. With a wealth of natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and a regional Free Trade Agreement, the great diversity of markets and opportunities are attractive across a wide range of sectors.

Steady growth combined with investor-friendly government policies have attracted businesses keen to explore the vibrant new domestic markets that are emerging. Entrepreneurs are seizing the opportunity. South East Asia’s economic dynamism is substantially enhancing the buying power of a growing middle class that is driving new consumer demands for many products.

By 2030, South East Asia’s economy is predicted to eclipse Japan’s and be world’s 4th largest ‘single market’ after the EU, US and China. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) predicts that the size of the middle class in emerging Asia will increase from 24% of the population in 2010 to 65% in 2030. All of this leads to a ‘Community of Opportunities’.

Your appointments will be booked on a first come first serve basis, please register your interest early to avoid dissapointment.
