Darussalam Enterprise (DARe), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (United Nation ESCAP), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN) will co-organise the 4th ASEAN IB Summit as an online event. This event will present a diversity of business models in Southeast Asia and beyond that are helping build back better. It will showcase essential elements that make a business model both inclusive and commercially viable and explore how inclusive businesses are helping low-income and marginalized populations recover from the economic crisis. It will also present digital solutions, investment models, and partnerships that enable businesses to address the challenges posed by COVID-19 and build back better.
The Summit will explore how governments can put into practice the Guidelines for the Promotion of Inclusive Business in ASEAN. It will discuss in detail two of the core measures suggested in the Guidelines: 1) the establishment of an inclusive business accreditation and registration system, and 2) the provision of business coaching services for firms to develop inclusive business models.
