US-ASEAN Business Council, Inc.'s 
U.S. Ambassadors Tour


September 30, 2015
12:00-1:30 p.m.

The U.S. Ambassadors Tour has been a key fixture in the U.S. foreign policy scene since 1992, as the US-ASEAN Business Council has brought U.S. Ambassadors to major ASEAN countries to cities throughout the U.S. to spread the word about opportunities in Southeast Asia for U.S. businesses. Attend to learn about the connections business, government, and academic leaders throughout the U.S. are forging with ASEAN.
ASEAN is the 4th largest export market for the United States and the 5th largest trading partners. Trade with ASEAN supports more than 600 American jobs, and U.S. companies have more invested in ASEAN than any other country in Asia, and more than in the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries combined!
