Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) comprises of 10 countries, with a population of over 625 million, and a combined nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of over USD 2.8 trillion. If counted as a single entity, it would rank sixth in the world, making ASEAN a very attractive market.
To facilitate regional business and leverage on the strengths of individual country chambers/councils, Dutch Chambers in the Southeast Asian region committed to collaboration under the title of The ASEAN Dutch Chamber Network.
ASEAN Dutch Chamber Network consists of six Dutch Chambers of Commerce (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) and represents a diverse range of Dutch Business, cutting across almost every commercial sphere from manufacturing and financial services, to Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and high-end electronics and communications.
ASEAN Dutch Chamber Network is helping to do this by developing common exposure, better streamlining of membership, and providing increased opportunities for respective members to attend events from Dutch colleague chambers that could especially be of interest for many regional representatives here in ASEAN.
