Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies in Southeast Asia




On September 9, we joined forces with Acclime, MPG, EnterPH, Sleek and Greenhouse Co. to deliver a webinar discussing "Market Opportunities and Entry Strategies in Southeast Asia."

About this event

Located at the heart of the Asia-Pacific region and situated across major trade routes, Southeast Asia is one of the world's most exciting areas for doing business today.

Just over a decade ago, four in five Southeast Asians had no internet connectivity and limited access to the internet. Today, people living in Southeast Asia are the most engaged mobile internet users in the world. There are 360 million internet users in the region, and 90% of them connect to the internet primarily through their mobile phones. Steady development in technological adoption, foreign investment, and digital innovation accelerate the growth of the internet economy at an unprecedented pace. In 2019, the e-economy reached $100B, more than tripling in size over the last four years. By 2025, Google, Bain & Company, and Temasek, project that the internet economy will reach $300B!

Even today, amid global uncertainties centered around increasing protectionism from some of the most significant economic powers such as the US and China, Brexit, and the global pandemic, it seems like nothing can stop the growth of Southeast Asia.

Fast-growth markets like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, as well as the region’s hub Singapore are at the forefront of that growth, attracting companies from all over the world to expand and benefiting from the opportunities presented by the large size of young population.
