Asian Business Association

About the ABA

The 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.

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.

Aims of the ABA

The ABA provides a voice for the London Asian business community and represents their views to the media, local and central government. In addition to hosting networking events to enable companies to create new business connections, we facilitate cross border trade and investment particularly with areas where the Asian community has historic links.

Build strong relationships

ABA Committee members include business founders, CEOs, and managing directors – from a variety of sectors and organisations.

Joining the Committee can help give your business a genuine advantage, by forging strong ties with other members – and accessing their expertise.
