Improving Research and Advocacy Skills of Business Associations in CLMV Countries

Status: Ongoing.

In support of the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI) Work Plan III’s Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Action III, the project aims to assist business associations in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam (CLMV) to better represent the interests of the local business community during policy making by:

  • Identifying gaps for business associations in CLMV countries in developing, managing and delivering advocacy programmes/ activities.
  • Identifying capacity building requirements for CLMV business associations to better conduct business advocacy activities;
  • Providing training and mentoring to participating business associations to develop these skills; and
  • Providing mentoring support for each participating business association to identify and undertake a specific business advocacy activity or programme.

For more information about this project, please contact the IAI/NDG Division of the ASEAN Secretariat.
