Commerce Secretary Pritzker to Join Council CEO Mission

The US-ASEAN Business Council announced today that it will organize its second annual CEO- level business mission to ASEAN this June, building on the success of last year’s mission to Indonesia, Malaysia, and the ASEAN Secretariat. The 2014 CEO mission will include the CEOs of at least 7 member companies from a variety of sectors, who will visit Vietnam and the Philippines. US-ASEAN Business Council Chairman Evan Greenberg, the President and CEO of ACE Limited, invited the participants and will lead the delegation. In order to underscore U.S. government support for high-level private sector dialogues with ASEAN business and government officials, U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker will travel with the delegation.
U.S. businesses are highly committed to the ASEAN region, with more than $190 billion invested in the 10 countries of ASEAN. U.S. investment in ASEAN is the highest investment it has in Asia, greater than China, India, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and New Zealand combined.  Sustained, high-level engagement from the private sector is essential to maintaining and expanding economic ties,
Vietnam and the Philippines are two of ASEAN’s fastest growing countries, and the delegation will meet with the leaders of the government and the ASEAN private sector to exchange views and discuss impediments to and opportunities for increasing trade and investment between the U.S. and ASEAN nations.
The participation of Secretary Pritzker shows the depth of U.S. government commitment to the economic aspect of the rebalance towards Asia, and will further enable joint public-private sector efforts to build meaningful partnerships with ASEAN.
