About the 2022 Summit

After a largely internal focus, while countries fought to ‘take care of their own’ and find solutions within their borders, it is now recognised that collaborative regional responses are a better and more sustainable path to recovery. We need to be looking for ways to not necessarily open literal borders but rather explore and invest in the endless virtual and alternative pathways available. Forging a new way forward for relationships, partnerships and negotiations. A new way to secure or at least back up supply chains.

A new way to meet each other.
A new way to work together.

This time of difficulty is also a time of great opportunity. This is the time to be strengthening our region, enhancing our relationships, developing our business, and finding solutions


Melissa Challenor-Bevis

President of the Australia Thailand Business Chamber (WA) Inc.

"This is where synergies start. This is where relationships begin. This is where, if you are looking to expand your business, you will be watching closely. This is where the magic begins."


The Opportunity

The Summit provides a chance for business and individuals to participate in a world class event that can light the way for all regions to see the way forward. It is time for our region to show ourselves as innovative, flexible and most importantly – open for business.

5-6 September 2022

This event will be a showcase of ASEAN member and APAC countries highlighting the top performing business, the most innovative startups and the best each country has to offer. It will span two days of forums, events and networking opportunities – combining face to face, real time virtual interactions, published materials and pre recorded pieces ensuring all participants can enjoy proceedings regardless of their physical access.
