Are you interested in exporting to South East Asia?

The Department for International Trade (DIT), in partnership with Britain in South East Asia (BiSEA) and UK-ASEAN Business Council (UKABC), is pleased to offer the opportunity to meet one-to-one with experts on the South East Asian markets of Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

South East Asia is a vibrant emerging market where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. According to BiSEA, by 2030, South East Asia’s economy is predicted to eclipse Japan’s and grow to be the world’s 4th largest ‘single market’ after the EU, US and China.

In fact, South East Asia’s economic dynamism is substantially enhancing the buying power of a growing middle class that is predicted to increase to 65% in 2030 (Asian Development Bank).

With a wealth of natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and a regional Free Trade Agreement, the South East Asia markets and opportunities are attractive to a wide range of sectors.
