Research Paper

Asia has been a tremendous source of growth for businesses involved in the region over the past 10 years, but while these businesses continue to grow and prosper, Australian’s still seem reluctant to invest in the area. This research paper explores the changes in Asia over the last 10 years, focusing on the economy, individual company case studies, corporate governance and engagement in world affairs. It also examines factors likely to affect prospects for the Asian region over the coming years. From the Chinese growth stories to the politics of India, this research paper gives insights needed to re-evaluate the investment opportunities in this region.
