Unsurprisingly, the ten-nation bloc has been high on the watchlist of foreign investors, especially against the backdrop of China’s declining competitiveness. But with upwards of $US1.5 trillion in trade flowing through the region annually and a combined GDP of nearly US$2.5 trillion, deciding how and where to bring your business into ASEAN can be a bewildering exercise. Cognizant of the risks involved in any foreign investment venture, Dezan Shira & Associates offers insight pooled from our established presence in Vietnam and Singapore, and partner firms throughout the region.
In this issue of Asia Briefing, we forecast the effects of ASEAN Economic Community on foreign investment into the region in the lead up to 2015. Following this, we highlight what is happening in some of ASEAN’s hottest industries for investment, including electronics, information and communications technology, textiles and medical devices. Lastly, we examine the growing potential of bilateral trade between ASEAN and India in light of recent historic developments in the latter.
