Pristine waters, white-sand beaches and luxurious indulgences – these are just some of the things we think about the Caribbean islands. Traveling to Caribbean region is quite expensive and challenging but with the signed partnership between the Jump Network and the Caribbean ASEAN Council, it could open more opportunities.
The Caribbean region becomes an open market for inbound tourism, trade opportunities, and foreign direct investment for ASEAN countries with the establishment of the Caribbean Tourism, Trade & Investment Bureau-also known as “The Caribbean ASEAN Bureau” – through the collaboration of The JUMP Network and the Caribbean ASEAN Council.
In a press conference held recently at the TV5 Media Center in Mandaluyong City,”The Caribbean ASEAN Bureau” was officially introduced as a monumental partnership between The JUMP Network (TJN) and the Caribbean ASEAN Council (CAC) which aims to foster the Caribbean region’s tourism and economic cooperation in Southeast Asia. The event was attended by Caribbean diplomats as well as key representatives from TJN and the CAC.
“The Caribbean is known as an immense area composed of the world’s best beaches and oceanic wonders. But there is more to the Caribbean than just sun, sea, and sand. It is a region of diverse opportun ities for trade, investment, and tourism. TJN recogn izes this remarkable potential that can greatly benefit a niche market of high-net-worth tourists and families and medium-to-large companies in Southeast Asia”, said Datu Sadja Matthew Pajares Yngson, Representative Councillor of the Caribbean ASEAN Council.
With TJN’s formidable regional presence and local managed services capabilities, we are proud to partner with the Caribbean ASEAN Council in making the Caribbean ASEAN Bureau as the gateway for commercial representation for the ASEAN nations in the Caribbean region,” announced TJN President & CEO Jed Marcaida.
With the establishment of the Caribbean ASEAN Bureau as a competent managed service, business and trade communities in the ASEAN countries will be able to conveniently liaise with
Caribbean enterprises and governments in exploring opportunities for inbound tourism and trade investments to the Caribbean region.
The ten member countries of the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) include the following strong and emerging economies of : Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos,
Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
