Vistra Seminar: Doing Business on the Pacific Rim - Opportunities and Challenges

The Pacific Rim is booming. The facts are well-known. China has emerged as the world's second largest economy with an average annual economic growth of 10% over the past 30 years. More recently, India and Southeast Asian countries have also been gaining momentum and showing large potential due to their strategic location, growing local markets and purchase power.

An increasing number of US small and medium sized enterprises, along with the large MNCs are interested in entering China, India or ASEAN markets. There are clear opportunities and (sometimes less clear) challenges.
