ASEAN: Setting the Engine in Motion
These are exciting times as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) join forces to form a robust economic bloc that presents limitless opportunities in Southeast Asia.
Home to some of the world’s fastest growing markets including Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Brunei, ASEAN’s influence in the world economy is exponentially growing. At its current growth rate of 5.1%, it is poised to become a major global force and the world’s fourth largest economy by 2030, establishing itself as one of the most popular investment destinations worldwide and the second largest destination in Asia.
Although ASEAN has made tremendous efforts to integrate the different markets and has gained exceptional momentum over the course of 50 years, disparities in laws, governments, and economic systems still pose as a threat to investors and business owners. Inspite of various challenges, its economic performance continues to dominate over the rest of the world.

With our in-depth industry knowledge and experience, we assist our clients in navigating relevant economies and equipping them with the right tools, data, and technology to make well-informed, value-adding decisions.
