The ASEAN Business Advisory Council is calling for nominations for the 8th ASEAN Business Awards 2015. The ASEAN Business Awards (ABA) is a regional awards programme designed to showcase the success of ASEAN businesses.
“Recipients of the ABA set the benchmark for ASEAN companies to emulate through demonstrating the region’s best-in-class corporate standards that deserve to be commended and celebrated,” says Tan Sri Munir Majid, Chairman of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council.
With a focus on the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the Priority Integration Sector Excellence Awards have been introduced to bring to the fore companies that are leaders in the agro-based, automotive, aviation, e-Asean, electronics, fisheries, logistics, textiles, tourism and wood-based industries. Also a new category, the Friends of ASEAN Awards are extended to non-ASEAN companies with a strong presence in the region to recognize the foreign but influential players who have contributed and are committed to growing the ASEAN economy.
Recognizing SMEs as well as women and young entrepreneurs as a vital part of the region’s economic activity, the ABA are once again commending trailblazers in their respective areas with the return of the SME Excellence Awards, Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and the Woman of the Year Award particularly in the areas of Employment, Growth, Innovation and CSR.
A total of 21 Awards will highlight exemplary organizations in the five categories.
Winners are chosen by an esteemed panel of judges consisting of prominent regulative officers and business academicians, and are guided by an advisory of professional auditors who are appointed as strategic partners in assuring a quality and thorough selection standard.
The ASEAN Business Awards will culminate at the Gala Dinner of the apex of the ASEAN Business and Investment Summit on 20th November 2015.
