The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), with a collective GDP of USD 2.5 trillion, a population exceeding 600 million, and a strategic location
at the crossroads of Australia, China and India, is a AUD 100 billion trading market for Australia.
Increasing regional connectivity is gradually lowering what barriers remain to trade and investment in the region, and allows Australia to build on the already strong commercial foundation we have in place with ASEAN.
This report discusses the opportunities that Australian companies can leverage today, keeping our focus practical while also highlighting emerging trends which are building the more connected ASEAN of tomorrow.
This report is intended to inform and inspire, though we also recognise the need to provide practical guides to opportunity. As part of our wider ASEAN Connected project, the ECA and HSBC Australia will also be launching a series of ASEAN toolkits which focus on practical information for accessing ASEAN opportunity.
We hope this report and wider project become useful resources and stepping stones on the path toward greater Australian engagement with ASEAN, today and tomorrow.
This report is made possible by the partnership with HSBC Australia who have also provided practical business guides on the below markets. Please click on the links below to download and of the country reports.

VEKTA Advanced Automation
Member of the ECA
"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
