Project Insight - Industrial Construction Projects: Asia-Pacific


With Asia-Pacific leading the recovery in global trade growth with 7.4% in the first half of 2017 it is not surprising that it also leads in the industrial construction investment with the two major economies of India and China leading this investment.
