The GCABC is founded by the German bilateral chambers in ASEAN which are represented in Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and thereby ensuring that the process is driven in a demand-oriented way by private sector actors. The German bilateral chambers actively seek to involve national chambers of ASEAN Member States (AMSs) and ASEAN Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI).
