Join the U.S. Commercial Service for a seminar to explore opportunities for selling your products and services to the 10 countries that comprise the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).  

 ASEAN represents strong potential for U.S. exporters:

  • It is the second-fastest growing Asian economy (after China) valued at $2.4 trillion.
  • Member countries — Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam — have economies and markets at vastly different stages of development but all sharing immense growth potential.
  • 67 million households in ASEAN states boast annual income that allows them to more than provide for their basic needs.

Keynote speaker Margaret (Maggie) Hanson-Muse is the Regional Senior Commercial Officer for ASEAN and is based at the U.S. Embassy in Singapore. She has also served with the U.S. Commercial Service in Mexico, Cote d’Ivoire, India, Costa Rica, Peru and Colombia.  Maggie graduated cum laude from Brandeis University and earned an MBA in Marketing and Finance from the Columbia University (NY) Graduate School of Business.
