OVERVIEW

Given the rigorous growth and the increasing regionalization of Asian markets, there is a need for better understanding and manipulation of the business environment that will allow access to untapped or under-tapped business opportunities in Asia.

While numerous events have been held to promote business opportunities at the macro-level, business owners and managers of micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) lack a platform that provides credible and valuable market information; access to an established peer-level network; and effective partnership facilitation.

Doing Business in Asia Alliance aims to fill this gap via its rapidly expanding network across Asia. It provides easily-accessible practical-market information, and hosts business trips and events, with the Doing Business in Asia annual meeting being the capstone event of the year.
