Asia Business Forum’s mission is to create a forum for professionals in the Greater Seattle Area, who are engaged in work related to Asia or interested in Asian economies, to share knowledge, ideas, experience and expertise.
By creating such forum, ABF intends to be a catalyst for building and sustaining the Asia-related business community and caters to the needs and interests of professionals doing Asia-related work.
In addition to Asia as a whole region, ABF mostly covers China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and India. Furthermore, we discuss not only outbound investments from the U.S. to Asia but also inbound investments from Asian countries to Washington.
ABF hosts a forum six times a year in Seattle and Bellevue. The forum is open and accessible to the public. While ABF puts together high quality presentations for business professionals, it uses this social media site to promote and administer its events and organization. There is no cost to become a member of ABF.
ABF is an all-volunteer, independent, politically neutral non-profit organization established in the State of Washington in 2011. ABF has established supporting relationships with 25 government, trade, business, culture and ethnic organizations and two universities in Seattle.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
