About ASEAN Access
ASEAN Access, with the tagline Your Business Information Gateway to ASEAN and Beyond, is an online portal serving as a first port of call for ASEAN SMEs and other businesses for information on trade and market access in ASEAN. ASEAN Access provides businesses interested in the ASEAN region with trade and market related information, and access to support services necessary to penetrate new markets.
The portal is overseen by the ASEAN Coordinating Committee on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (ACCMSME) and implemented under the mandate of the ASEAN Strategic Action Plan for SME Development 2016 – 2025, specifically to support MSMEs with ambitions to go international. It receives strategic guidance from the ASEAN Task Force on SME Service Centre Web Portal (ASEAN Access), managed by the Office of SMEs Promotion, Thailand (OSMEP), and is developed with the support of the German Development Cooperation (GIZ).
