Welcome to the ASEAN Regional Business Network.

This initiative will provide members of our associations greater connectivity, connections and assist with ease of business through the region.

The Network will do this by: Improving business linkages across the region through open and shared knowledge of contacts, providing reciprocal membership of associations and sharing benefits and business events.   It will tap into and make the most of the New Zealand business associations already active across ASEAN.

The ASEAN Regional Network is currently hosted under the ASEAN New Zealand Business Council banner as an easy path to all organisation involved.
