Facts and History

Asian American Business Development Center was established in New York City in 1994 to promote greater recognition of Asian American businesses’ contributions to the general economy. AABDC encourages Asian American businesses to be more actively involved in issues and policies that directly affect them at the federal, state and city levels and provides capacity-building assistance to business entities that enables them to compete in the mainstream marketplace and expand business opportunities.

Over the years, AABDC has created a significant presence within the Asian American business community in the U.S., and following the global economy, has established a credible position as a middleman introducing business opportunities between China and New York.  Some highlights include:

Established an Annual Awards Event:

Established in 2001, the Outstanding 50 Asian Americans in Business Award dinner is the only such event of its kind to acknowledge the achievements of Asian American corporate executives and entrepreneurs across a wide spectrum of industries and their contributions to the U.S. economy.

Advocated for Fair Representation:

Together with the African American and Hispanic business associations in New York, the New Majority Alliance was formed to grow businesses and expand opportunities.

AABDC has worked to create equal opportunities for Asian American owned businesses in local government projects, and has been a strong advocate of positive policy changes in the small business community.

Leveraged Business Networks:

Developed New York – China Business Opportunities:

Taking advantage of solid relationships with New York city and state business agencies and legislators, AABDC was the first business organization to lead a delegation of New York State legislators and businesses to China in 2003. Now known as “Invest in New York”, the trade mission is an ongoing annual event.

Opened New York in China Center:

Seeing the need to have a dedicated presence in China, AABDC opened its first overseas affiliate, the New York in China Center in Beijing. The Center’s main focus is to assist businesses based in New York State to enter the China market and at the same time promote inward investment into New York State.
