The EU-ASEAN Business Sentiment Survey is the EU-ABC's annual flagship publication which surveys the outlook of European businesses in the region. Currently running the 6th edition of the EABSS, the report is used as a concrete platform for dialogue and recommendations between both private and public sectors in the ASEAN region, with the aim of moving the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint forward.

This annual report is presented to Ministers and government officials during various high-level dialogues and meetings attended throughout the year. The EU-ABC also distributes copies to prominent business and industry leaders in the Membership, alongside journalists that facilitate wide media coverage all across Southeast Asia and the APAC region. 

The 2020 edition follows on from the highly successful 2019 Survey that provided great insight into the European Business viewpoint. This publication has been repeatedly quoted by ASEAN Ministers during regional conferences and Ministerial meetings. More news coverage on our survey can be found below, with sponsorship and advertising opportunities for businesses wishing to increase brand awareness and thought-leadership.
