China, India & Vietnam: Setting Up in Asia’s Investment Hotspots

In this issue of Asia Briefing Magazine, we have set out to produce a guide to investing and establishing a business in Asia, focusing on the markets of China, India and Vietnam. We begin by analyzing how investment is treated in specific industries across these three countries. We then take a look at the investment vehicles that a foreign business can select, with an emphasis on representative offices (ROs) and liaison offices (LOs). Finally, we highlight the various forms of taxation that a foreign company should be aware of when entering the Asian market.
