Trade and E-commerce

The exponential growth of Asia’s trade and e-commerce market is attractive to overseas investors, but the fluid regulatory environment remains challenging.

Asia’s trade and e-commerce markets are growing rapidly across countries. China’s total import-export volume and cross border e-commerce transactions reached US $4 trillion and US $1.2 trillion, respectively, in 2017 – both representing the world’s largest markets.

Vietnam’s e-commerce market is experiencing double-digit growth, while investors in India are benefiting from rapidly growing internet penetration and some relaxation of government regulations.

Despite the prosperity of the market, entering the industry can pose considerable challenges.

How we can help companies leverage growth in the trade and e-commerce industry:

Foreign investors often struggle with the fluid regulatory environment, which is evolving quickly to meet the rapid growth of these markets and the demands of its consumers.

The increasing effect of global geo-politics also has considerable impact on risk assessment for companies involved in the trade and e-commerce industry.
