Asia is a region set to lead the world as it becomes an increasingly important engine of growth leading the world out of the worst recession in over half a century. On current trends, it is estimated that by 2030, Asia’s economy will be larger than that of the United States and European Union combined with the region’s share of world GDP swelling from a little under 30 percent closer to more than 40 percent. Within Asia, the AEC (ASEAN) will drive South East Asia as the future growth engine within Asia itself. We have been able to deliver quality programs with unmatched results, through our local bases in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand, Japan, offering our customers with in-depth knowledge and strategic understanding of a growing region.
