ASEAN DUTCH CHAMBER NETWORK
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) comprises 10 countries, with a population of over 625 million, and a combined nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of over US $2.8 trillion. If counted as a single entity, it would rank sixth in the world, making ASEAN a very attractive market. To facilitate regional business and leverage the strengths of individual country chambers/councils, Dutch Chambers in the Southeast Asian region committed to collaboration under the title of The ASEAN Dutch Chamber Network (ADCN).
ADCN consists of six Dutch Chambers of Commerce (Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam), and represent a diverse range of Dutch Business, cutting across almost every commercial sphere from manufacturing and financial services, to Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), and high-end electronics and communications.
ADCN is developing some common exposure, better streamlining of membership, and providing increased opportunities for respective members to attend events from Dutch Chamber colleagues that could especially be of interest for many regional representatives here in ASEAN. Read on to find out more about the individual chambers. To visit our regional Chamber events page, please visit nlib.bigdash.community/groups.
