About CABA

China-ASEAN Business Association (CABA) was established in Singapore in 2013 and it serves as a platform to promote business ties and collaboration for the China and ASEAN region as these countries continue to be top trading partners.

Beyond business networking and collaboration opportunities, CABA also provides for business co-operation between China and ASEAN within the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

History

2013

CABA was established and it focused in building its brand and expanding its reach to ASEAN. This includes building its profile; linking itself with ASEAN and China dialogue and co-operation mechanisms; expanding its membership within the ASEAN countries; and promoting joint activities with the support of China-ASEAN Business Council (CABC) and the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ABAC).

CABA became an associate member of the East Asia Business Council (EABC).

2015

CABA-Malaysia became the first entity to be established outside Singapore.

2019 (May)

China-ASEAN Business Association was restructured as China-ASEAN Business Alliance, a company limited by guarantee (CLG).

The new CABA will subsume all the existing activities and membership and at the same time continue to strengthen its core areas in promoting trade and connecting businesses in the ASEAN and China regions.

Plans ahead

In the coming years, CABA will be stepping-up its current activities to transform CABA into one of the key business platforms for ASEAN-China partnership and co-operation as the ASEAN-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA) matures and ASEAN-China connectivity is enhanced, through the ASEAN-China Maritime Silk Road and the Belt & Road Initiative.
