Doing Business in South East Asia | Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

Doing Business in South East Asia



Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the BiSEA Chamber Network and Scottish Development International, is inviting members to receive 1-2-1 advice about doing business in South East Asia.

South East Asia is a region where economic growth and development is expected to exceed the global average for the foreseeable future. With a wealth of natural resources, low-cost skilled labour, and a regional Free Trade Agreement, the great diversity of markets and opportunities are attractive across a wide range of sector.

Steady growth combined with investor-friendly government policies have attracted businesses keen to explore the vibrant new domestic markets that are emerging.  South East Asia’s economic dynamism is substantially enhancing the buying power of a growing middle class that is driving new consumer demands for many products.

By 2030, South East Asia’s economy is predicted to eclipse Japan’s and be the world’s 4th largest ‘single market’ after the EU, US and China.  The Asian Development Bank (ADB) predicts that the size of the middle class in emerging Asia will increase from 24% of the population in 2010 to 65% in 2030. All of this leads to a ‘Community of Opportunities’.

South East Asia is comprised of markets with diverse socio-cultural differences as well as different legal and regulatory environments but all offer opportunities for UK exporters and investors in practically every sector including manufacturing, infrastructure, telecommunications, aviation, renewables, education, retail and consumer goods, defence and security, life sciences and oil and gas.

We are delighted to welcome to Glasgow our colleagues in the British Chambers in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippines and Vietnam.

This free event is exclusively for businesses who are actively looking to export, invest or import from South East Asia.   Please follow this link to book your 1-2-1 business clinics, each of which will last 30 minutes.   Availability is limited so please book promptly.

Please note that the business clinics are not suitable for companies who offer services to exporters and/or importers.
