Emerging Asian economies will continue to develop rapidly in 2018, delivering substantial gains in wealth and production capacity. Although executives managing the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region will have to track a variety of factors—China will undergo a major leadership transition, India’s business environment will shift with implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), and saber rattling on the Korean peninsula will create considerable uncertainty—they should nevertheless expect to see substantial white space open across the region.

We recently sat down with FSG’s Director for Asia Pacific Research, Adam Jarczyk, to discuss the report findings, risks to monitor in the region, and potential business implications for MNCs. In this exclusive interview, Adam discusses six priority actions for executive teams to help accelerate their organization’s growth in the region, and lay the foundation for sustainable long-term business development.

“Aside from broader “priority actions” that we believe executives should pursue to accelerate their organization’s development and sets of specific actions that companies can take to get ahead of disruptive events in Asia, we also offer actions for each major market that we cover, outlining how companies can get ahead of developing trends in places like China, India, and Indonesia.” -Adam Jarczyk
