Asian Business Association

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Asian Business Association (ABA) was established in 1995 - under the Chairmanship of the late Lord Gulam Noon MBE and Subhash Thakrar – in recognition of the huge contribution Asian businesses make to London’s economy.


About the Asian Business Association

The ABA is widely regarded as the most important forum for Asian business and provides a voice for the London Asian business community. The ABA’s success is a true reflection of the success of Asian entrepreneurs in the UK. In addition to hosting networking events, we facilitate cross border trade and investment particularly with areas where the Asian community has historic links.
