Britain in South East Asia (BiSEA) event

Monday, April 30, 2018 - Ziferblat, 39 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HW

Learn about opportunities to grow your business in South East Asia with the support of the Department for International Trade (DIT) and our partners.

We are hosting a delegation of senior representatives from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam to promote the wealth of opportunities available in these markets for North West businesses.

South East Asia is a region where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. With a wealth of natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and a regional Free Trade Agreement, the great diversity of markets and opportunities are attractive across a wide range of sectors. Steady growth combined with investor-friendly government policies have attracted businesses keen to explore the vibrant new domestic markets that are emerging.

The event will offer a unique chance to hold pre-arranged one-to-one meetings with the delegation to discuss market opportunities. The meetings are suitable for both experienced exporters and first time exporters alike.
