Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang (born 12 December 1958) is a Malaysian politician. He is the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Kanowit constituency in Sarawak, representing the Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) in the governing Barisan Nasional coalition.
Before entering federal Parliament, Dagang was political secretary to then Minister for Energy, Communications and Multimedia, Amar Leo Moggie. Dagang then replaced Moggie in the Kanowit seat when the latter stepped down for the 2004 general election. After the election, Dagang's Sarawak Native People's Party was de-registered, and he joined the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party and later the PRS. He retained the Kanowit seat in the 2008 election unopposed.
Dagang received the Panglima Jasa Negara (PJN), an award entitling him to use the title 'Datuk', in 2010.
