As they continue to benefit from the regional diffusion of China’s growth, economies in Southeast Asia will play a major role in leading global growth for the foreseeable future.
Domestic demand for newer and better products and services, twinned with inward FDI and improved manufacturing capabilities, will drive the key economies of the region. As they progress from ‘developing’ to ‘developed’, they are generating an array of opportunities for multinational and aspiring international businesses.
While Japan, Korea, Australia and Taiwan tackle first world problems and slowing growth, the younger economies of India, Indonesia and the rest of Southeast Asia are increasingly benefiting from a rapidly expanding middle-class and innovation-driven solutions to previously intractable problems.
Both developing and developed markets hold promise for well-informed businesses who understand where the opportunities lie, how to address them and how to compete against strong local players.
We have an office in Singapore and consultants on the ground in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. They provide the local research, customer and industry interviewing, business partner meetings, on-site observation and culturally-informed analysis that forms the foundation of the accurate data, reliable insights and strategic advisory valued by our clients.
