Improve your Asia business investment
You may be in market already, have done some initial intel or have business relationships. But it’s a different market and cultural understanding is is so much more than knowing how to hand out a business card. What are the ‘unseen rules’, how do you navigate them and how can a different business culture affect your investment strategy.
We adopt a long term view and commitment to every project.
For many companies wanting to do business in Asia, it is easy to imagine that as long as you have done your complete market research and have the right product and contracts, your strategy should be assured. However, this is often the mistaken view of western businesses. At Bisnis Asia, we work with you to put the best foot forward at every step for doing business in Asia.
Bring us in to test your approach, ask the hard questions and guide your path on business in Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines and Japan.
