About ASEAN Inclusive Business Summit 2023
Inclusive businesses (IB) provide goods, services, and livelihoods on a commercially viable basis, to people living at the base of the pyramid making them part of the value chain of companies as suppliers, distributors, retailers, or customers.
ASEAN has been promoting IB as an integral part of its economic agenda since 2017 when its Economic Ministers endorsed the ASEAN Inclusive Business Framework urging member states to create an environment conducive to inclusive practices by businesses.
Since then, ASEAN has organized five ASEAN Inclusive Business Summit. More importantly, in 2022, the ASEAN Economic Ministers endorsed the regional Guidelines for the Promotion of Inclusive Business in ASEAN. These guidelines, endorsed by the ASEAN Economic Ministers, serve as a reference for policymakers and businesses, presenting policy instruments and recommendations to facilitate widespread adoption of IB both at the national and regional levels.
