More and more companies are moving their outsourcing and production from China to countries in Southeast Asia. The aim is to increase profitability. Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand have become interesting options that offer competitive advantages in terms of cost and quality.

These three countries have a rapidly growing middle class that are potential consumers. Growth is strong in several industries and trade barriers, both technical and business culture, has been reduced.

This means that the region offers interesting opportunities for Swedish companies to relocate production or outsource operations to Southeast Asia. The EU has also concluded or are negotiating free trade agreements with several countries. And countries in Southeast Asia  have free trade agreements with each other (ASEAN) and other Asian countries.

At the seminar we will present:

  • Growing sectors and industries
  • Specific business opportunities
  • Manufacturer, distributor and partner search
  • Practical market entry strategies
  • Internationalisation of the Swedish company – Pharmacure Healthcare International
