The ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN BAC) will once again recognize outstanding ASEAN companies at the 11th ASEAN Business Awards (ABA), to be held on November 12, 2018, at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

The ASEAN Business Awards – organized by the ASEAN BAC Singapore and in partnership with Singapore Management University and Ernst & Young – aims to recognize outstanding ASEAN enterprises that have greatly contributed to ASEAN’s economic growth and prosperity.

ABA also serves as a platform for information dissemination regarding the ASEAN Economic Community to promote regional integration among ASEAN member states. In addition, it intends to highlight small and medium enterprises that have the potential to become global economic players.

There will be seven categories for ABA, namely Priority Integration Sector Excellence (Medium and Large), SME Excellence, Friends of ASEAN, Young Entrepreneur, Woman Entrepreneur, and Sustainable Social Enterprise.

This year, ABA added a new category called the ASEAN Family Business Award. This category recognizes outstanding family businesses that employ sustainable business models and have made significant financial and social impact in the ASEAN community for generations.

Previous winners from the Philippines include John Gokongwei Jr. (JG Summit Holdings), Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala (Ayala Corp.), Teodoro Ferrer (Erikagen Inc.), Dennis Uy (Udenna Corp.), Cecilio Pedro (Lamoiyan Corp.), Emma Imperial (Imperial Homes Corp.), Paul Rodriguez (Asian Marine Transport Corp.), Pedro Delantar (Nature’s Legacy Eximport), Olivia Limpe-Aw (Destileria Limtuaco & Co.), Bernie Liu (Golden ABC), Anya Lim (ANTHILL Fabric Gallery), Jhondie Abenza, EMS Component Assembly, and Oryspa Spa Solutions.
