Welcome to the ABPA website ...


Welcome to the website of the ASEAN Book Publishers Association (ABPA). 

This website introduces you to the activities of ABPA and to forthcoming events in the region, awards won and useful industry resource links. As of 1 January 2008, ABPA has eight member countries: Brunei, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, which in turn represent hundreds of individual publishers engaged in a wide range of publishing, marketing, retail and distribution activities. 

ABPA aims to provide its members with information and advice to help them succeed in business. We represent members at book fairs throughout ASEAN and further afield. It is also our aim to provide a friendly community in which ASEAN-based publishers and related industry partners can pool knowledge and experiences.
