What is Asia EDGE? Launched in July 2018 as an initiative to support the President’s vision for the Indo-Pacific region, Asia EDGE (Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy) is a U.S. whole-of-government effort to grow sustainable and secure energy markets throughout the Indo-Pacific. Asia EDGE seeks to strengthen energy security, increase energy diversification and trade, and expand energy access across the Indo-Pacific.
Overview: ITA is organizing an executive-led Business Development Mission to Southeast Asia, with stops in Indonesia (Jakarta) and Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi) and an optional program in Thailand (Bangkok). This trade mission will be the first organized under the Asia Enhancing Development and Economic Growth through Energy (Asia EDGE) initiative.
Benefits: Mission participants will have the opportunity to meet with key Southeast Asian decision makers to discuss how to foster policies, regulations, and financial investment that support the development of sustainable, secure, and profitable energy markets. Mission participants will network with regional government officials, be introduced to prospective business partners, and facilitate discussions on best practices in their areas of technical expertise. Participants will gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, discuss enabling policies, and advance specific projects, with the primary goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services to the Indo-Pacific. The mission will include customized one-on-one business appointments, meetings with state and local government officials, and networking events.
