2016 Asia Pacific Outlook

2016 Asia Pacific Outlook


Asia’s emerging markets will maintain stronger growth than many other regions’ emerging markets.

Although the Chinese economy is gradually decelerating, the rise of middle classes across the region and increased investment from other Asian nations will largely offset the effects of this slowdown. Even so, multinational companies will not find it easy to expand profitably in this environment.

As local companies become more sophisticated and multinationals become more aggressive, Asia Pacific executives will have to become more discerning as they choose where and how to conduct business.
