About Us

What We Do
The US-ASEAN Business Council Inc. (Council) was established in 1984 as a non-profit organization. On behalf of its members, the Council conducts research and analysis of economic, environmental, financial, political, and social, conditions in the ten countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam comprise the ten nations of ASEAN.
President’s Take
Summer is here, and the US-ASEAN Business Council is in full swing, delivering high impact programming and advocacy for our member companies! On June 5, the Council co-organized the US-ASEAN Digital Economy Policy Retreat for ASEAN trade officials negotiating the Digital Economy Framework Agreement (DEFA) in Bangkok in partnership with the Thailand Ministry of Commerce (Chair of the DEFA Negotiating Committee).
