Doing business in the Asia-Pacific region

With five of the most populous countries in the world and home to almost 60 per cent of the global population, the Asia Pacific region cannot be ignored by UK businesses in search of new markets.

But as well as offering huge opportunities for international expansion, the Asia Pacific region also presents many challenges for example, cultural, linguistic, regulatory and political ideologies.

Our presence in the Asia Pacific region covers 20 countries and includes more than 10,000 people.

We have a number of dedicated ‘country desks’ who have close collaborative relations with our RSM International colleagues. We can support and guide you in doing business in Asia Pacific.
