Although cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been used in quite a few Asian countries for many decades, it has been suggested that a significant barrier for the advancement of research and training in CBT among CBT practitioners has been a Jack oh regularized opportunity for networking. This paper presents a brief history of the development of an Asian CBT network. The development of the network started in 1990 (Oei, 1998). Since then, 5 Asian CBT Conferences have been completed successfully; the sixth Conference will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 2018. In addition, the Asian Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Association (ACBTA) supported by many Asian countries' CBT groups was also established to provide a firm and durable organization. Formal links with the well-established World Congress Committee (WCC) in Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies were made by requesting ACBTA membership in the WCC. Progress in CBT research, training, and practices has been made in the last few decades. Further progress can and will be made. Asian CBT has started out well in this long journey, and it will end up well.
