Who We Are
The US-ASEAN Business Council is the pre-eminent representative of American business in Southeast Asia. We work across all 10 member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), representing more than 125 major U.S. corporations. Our membership includes companies who have been active in Southeast Asia for a century or more to newcomers looking to expand their presence in one of the world’s most dynamic markets. The Council’s sectoral working groups, including Customs, Defense & Security, Energy, Financial Services, Food and Agriculture, Health & Life Sciences, Information & Communications Technology, Infrastructure and Manufacturing, bring together the top companies in their fields to enable high-level dialogues that help resolve issues and drive innovation and investment. With long-established personal and professional relationships in ASEAN and Washington, the Council is the most effective conduit between decision-makers on both sides of the Pacific and a fantastic place to build your career.
Why Work for the Council?
As an employee of the US-ASEAN Business Council, you will represent some of America’s leading companies from across a wide spectrum of industries, including members such as Cargill, The Coca-Cola Company, Chevron, General Electric, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble and Time Warner, as they work to expand their businesses in one of the most dynamic and growing regions of the world. Your duties may include following current events, advocating for U.S. business, and working directly with officials from the governments of the United States and the 10 ASEAN countries.
By helping to improve the business climate in ASEAN while increasing U.S. exports to and investment in Southeast Asia, your role at the Council can really make a difference to our members, U.S business as a whole, and to the countries in which we operate. It will require that you stay on top of trends and events as well as understand how new laws or rules may impact current business. With the goal to form the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015, there are lots of areas where the Council can play a role in helping to shape the Southeast Asia that U.S. companies will work in for many years to come.
We have offices in sevencountries, and we are always looking for talented, energetic individuals who thrive in a fast-paced environment, are quick learners, and are ready to help our members take on challenges and capitalize on opportunities in Southeast Asia.
