As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Asia has seen the emergence of an ever growing middle-class, eager to dip into developed countries “consumerism” and global investment opportunities. Notwithstanding China’s spectacular expansion and remaining potential, South East Asia has been gradually gaining ground, starting to impose itself as the new Asian Eldorado. High on the watch list of foreign investors, the new Asian tigers are attracting an increasing proportion of Foreign Direct Investment.
Considered by many as the new trade pivot of Asia, the region is about to become one of the most important financial and commercial hubs, with manufacturing centers gaining ground in Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia. While developed countries have already made their mark, it is expected that additional cross-opportunities will develop particularly with emerging countries such as Latin America, EMEA, and Africa.
Regional Associations have been developing steadily over the last 40 years and have led to various agreements. Among them, the ASEAN, economic community that aggregates 10 countries of South East Asia ranks 3rd largest economic block in the world after the European Union (EU) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ASEAN members have been working on the establishment of a single fully integrated market (AEC) that will be officially launched by 2015. Although we are still far from a true economic regional integration, goals are already in place to making South East Asia a free flow of goods, services, investments and skilled labour zone.
Asia’s economic growth is on track to make the region home to the largest pool of wealth in the world by 2017. While such affluence will support an increasingly wealthy higher class,it will also spread wealth amongst the growing middle-class. Such a trend will contribute to the development of opportunities for firms willing to penetrate the Asian market.

Regulations are at international standards, the business environment is well organized and access to neighbour countries is facilitated by the presence of the business orientated Changi International Airport.
