Governments, development banks, and energy companies are investing in energy development and environmental technologies in Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines creating opportunities for U.S. companies to export to these growing markets. Participating in an official U.S. Department of Commerce delegation, rather than traveling to these markets independently, will allow companies to confirm meetings with potential customers, partners, relevant government officials, and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The delegation will visit Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Manila. Mission participants will meet with ADB officials to explore business opportunities in these markets, in addition to the 42 additional ADB developing member countries. At each mission stop, the program will include briefings, networking receptions, and one-on-one business meetings with potential customers, partners and local representatives.
The U.S. Commercial Service is dedicated to supporting U.S. commercial interests abroad. Through a global network of the best international trade professionals in the world, the Commercial Service delivers the information and contacts your company needs to succeed in emerging markets. This Mission will directly support the "U.S.-ASEAN Expanded Economic Engagement” or E3 Initiative announced by President Obama at the 2012 U.S.-ASEAN Summit. The "E3” Initiative focuses on enhancing ASEAN members' capacity for advancing projects that will open up opportunities for U.S. companies in the region. The E-3 Initiative is a new framework for economic cooperation designed to expand trade and investment ties between the United States and ASEAN, creating new business opportunities and jobs in all eleven countries.
Participants will forge new relationships, develop existing relationships, and deepen their understanding of these emerging markets. With new opportunities arising, interest in these markets is growing, and new stakeholders are entering the picture resulting in increased urgency to expand U.S. commercial interest in these markets.
