The Asia Business Trade Association (ABTA) serves as the premier business association dedicated to the promotion of regional trade issues in cooperation with governments. The Association represents companies based in Asia to support improved cross-border trade and regulatory policies.
The ABTA is a resource for both governments and business community, acting as an advocate, thought-leader and capacity building partner on key cross-cutting trade issues.
ABTA brings together different sectors and firms of different sizes with governments to develop better trade and business environments for Asia.
ABTA has three broad pillars of work: Next Generation Trade, Trade Agreements (such as TPP11 or CPTPP and RCEP), and Encouraging Smaller Businesses. Each pillar includes working committees designed and run by ABTA members.
