An important function of the organization is to educate and motivate Asian American businesses to take a more active role in New York’s various federal, state and city programs that help minority businesses compete for and get a fair share of the business opportunities with government entities.

AABDC documents Asian Americans’ accomplishments in business and industry, and recognizes their individual achievements by honoring them in an annual Outstanding 50 Asian Americans in Business awards dinner.

Business Assistance: AABDC’s innovative approach in creating programs to promote and assist Asian American businesses to compete in the mainstream marketplace and for the sustainable business development of the Chinatown and Greater New York City Asian-American community – whether in the forms of small business assistance, tourism development, entrepreneurship promotion, marketing support – have placed the organization in the forefront of community economic development and command the respect of public and private sectors.
