ASEAN Purchasing Initiatives 2021 and 2022 have shown that the potential in Southeast Asia is huge. And in many cases still unknown. The next edition of the event, organized on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and as part of the Market Development Program for SMEs (MEP), offers once again support in the areas of sourcing, supply chain management, regionalization and de-risking. 


The 3rd ASEAN Purchasing Initiative will expand in 2024. In addition to Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, the Philippines and Indonesia are also included in the event. "This will cover the entire ASEAN region and offer more possibilities in regards to goods, suppliers, as well as create new networking opportunities." No travelling, high efficiency, and a large number of potential suppliers or new clients at no cost– these are just some of the advantages of this digital format!


Meet your personal favorites for direct discussions in efficient online B2B meetings and get an overview of the sourcing options in 7 countries. We, BME, local AHKs and OAV, will connect suppliers from ASEAN region with focus on drawing parts, metal, electronics, cast parts, welded assemblies, etc. directly with buyers from all industrial sectors.
