Australia: Doing business in Asia Pacific
Last Updated: 4 November 2012

The 2012 edition of Doing business in Asia Pacific, edited by Michael Joyce and Andrew Clarke, is the latest in a series which has addressed business needs in the region over much of the past decade. It reports on the business environment in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Doing business anywhere in the Asia Pacific region is extraordinary. At times the challenges can be immense, but so too the rewards. The region is dynamic, entrepreneurial and, now, fully entitled to claim its place on the world stage as the principal driver of global economic and business growth. There is nothing that can compare with the excitement of concluding a successful transaction in any one of the jurisdictions here. One deal leads to another. Relationships accumulate layer upon layer of knowledge and trust.

We have been active here for several decades now. Each year, for the last nine years, we have published a comprehensive guide to doing business in the region. All the facts are here. We cover visas and work permits, types of business entities, business environment, policy on foreign investment, government initiatives, government incentives, taxation, workplace relations, occupational health and safety, and means to forestall or resolve a dispute.

This new edition of Doing business in Asia Pacific bundles up our local market knowledge, our emphasis on quality and our geographic reach to provide you with a key reference source. We wish you great success in all your business dealings in Asia Pacific.
