(Fort Lauderdale, Fla., December 20, 2006) - - The Association of Bi-National Chambers of Commerce in Florida (ABICC) just returned from a successful trade mission to Hong Kong, lead by Lita Haeger, President of ABICC.

One of the most active participants, Mr. Bernhard Schutte, Chairman and Chief Negotiator of EBM, found a strong interest of South East Asian companies wanting to penetrate the United States, Latin American, and Caribbean markets by establishing offices in South Florida as a hub.

Mr. Schutte and his team met over 25 companies in Hong Kong that had requested appointments with his company EBM, to inquire about establishing offices in South Florida. Afterwards Mr. Schutte and his team traveled to Thailand and Malaysia where Mr. Schutte gave a seminar on behalf of the US Department of Commerce and hosted by the Federation of Malaysian manufacturers. Mr. Schutte spoke to over 160 Malaysian manufacturers in Kuala Lumpur and Penang who are interested to use South Florida as a hub.
