Former Presidents

Since its establishment in May 1966, CACCI’s growth direction has been charted by committed business leaders from around the region – astute businessmen of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds but who share a common aspiration of regional economic growth through partnership between the private sector, government and international institutions.

During their respective tenure as President of the Confederation, each of these business leaders took on the important responsibility of uniting the region’s business community towards a singular objective of strengthening Asian chambers, for an effective role of serving business and their respective countries, ultimately contributing to the accelerated development of the region as a whole.
