AustralAsean's Vision, Mission and Core Values

AUSTRALASEAN

"We see what everyone else sees, but think what no one else has thought!"

AustralAsean Group Pty Limited is an Asia Pacific business development and trading company, headquartered in Sydney, Australia. The company pursues business opportunities in international trade, technology, environmental management, and renewable energy. Australasean's credo, "We see what everyone else sees, but think what no one else has thought," is an assertion of our unique approach to business. 

 

AustralAsean operates two subsidiary enterprises, one a business advisory service Networked Consulting and the other a trading company EcoTrade Asia. AustralAsean is the International distributor of Geo-Ionic patented road stabilisation system, HydroNova™ floating hydroelectricity generation technology, and PyroNova wildfire prevention and mitigation technology.

 

AustralAsean has a number of offshore ventures, in the Asia Pacific region, where our principal role is to represent Australian businesses. We evaluate, conceptualise, and facilitate projects in collaboration with our partners and investors. We see our future role as developing and implementing collaboration between organisations.

 

We carefully select projects, based on whether they offer viable returns. By assessing the political, economic, and commercial characteristics influencing a project. We make sound commercial assessments, and are continually evaluating new innovative ideas and opportunities taking into account our investment criteria. We can move quickly and decisively to take advantage of dynamic situations.

 

Some projects are funded from AustralAsean's own resources while others are offered to investors and partners who have desired outcomes, priorities, and values, compatible with our own. AustralAsean has both long and short-term projects and our enterprises range in value, from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. Our joint venture partners are made up of private investors, self-managed superannuation funds, and small to medium enterprises. We promote only those projects we considers to be exceptionally viable and as a team we value our integrity and reputation above all else.

In addition to business development, AustralAsean provides advisory services to assist clients to evaluate, develop, and manage their projects in Australia and the Asia Pacific. We can assist our clients to "do business" anywhere in the Australia and Asia Pacific and we have distribution capability and representation across the region. No job is too small, as we believe, that from small ideas often come big realities.

 

We work with Australian companies, such as Wanless Waste, Roy Medich Property Group, CBG Limited, FAL Developments, Project Innovations, JK Williams as well as major international organisations such as NMT Global Project Logistics, DHL Logistics Solutions, Suri Trading (Korea), Ardtech Road Syndicate (Malaysia), and Associated Traders Limited (Singapore). 

At AustralAsean we think laterally and we are not afraid to consider projects that others may deem a little "crazy." In these matters, we defer to the wisdom of Steve Jobs Apple's co-founder, and we are inspired by his words, "people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do."  Apple® commercial video Think different.
