Connect will work with its partners in ASEAN and the U.S. private sector to create stronger ties, unearthing new sustainable and inclusive economic opportunities. Connect will provide its private sector partners and ASEAN more coordinated access to the full range of resources and agencies of the U.S. government. It also offers a flexible vehicle for the U.S. private sector to engage with ASEAN in various forms including: joining the U.S. government in official policy dialogues with ASEAN, finding successful opportunities to increase investment within ASEAN, or directly supporting and collaborating on Connect programs.
U.S. business associations, their members, and numerous other U.S. businesses, particularly the partners listed below, have provided important support for Connect since its announcement and will continue to do so moving forward. We look forward to expanding our network of partners as we promote an agenda of shared prosperity.
