HONG KONG, April 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Following a challenging 2020 – where many international businesses around the world focused on operational continuity, crisis management, and transformation issues at home – 2021 beckons with the promise of some new growth opportunities at home and overseas in Asia.  

Asian countries are demonstrating remarkable attractiveness in 2021, stemming from high GDP growth expectations, burgeoning markets, booming technology sectors, and large new shifts in supply chains – resulting in new opportunities for trade, partnerships, and expansions for international investors.

Entering new markets in Asia successfully can be aided by a deeper, practical understanding of the focal country’s business and regulatory environment, expert advisory regarding the changes in Asia, identified areas of risk, incentive and opportunity, as well as the advised steps to prepare for and seize opportunities from entry to profit.
