20 June 2016: export Workshop on Southeast Asia for EPVs
A region driving international economic development with an average growth rate of nearly 5% in 2015 (3% worldwide), ASEAN (10 countries in South East Asia) has a population of 625 million (against 500 million in Europe) - and forecasts for 2025 announce an increase to 700 million people, characterised by the significant development of the middle class with higher income levels. To help EPVs (Living Heritage Companies) to position themselves in this market, the ISM (Institut Supérieur des Metiers), along with CCI France International, is organising a workshop / speed meeting with country advisers.
What are the opportunities for EPV companies in Southeast Asia?
ASEAN is bubbling with economic activity. It will soon be a single market for the free movement of capital and goods. Many transnational road projects have been launched. This region has many assets: an ideal "central" geographical position between India, China and developed countries (Australia, Korea, Japan), very variable GDP / inhabitants offering many highly diversified business opportunities.
Over the course of an afternoon, on Monday 20 June 2016, the Chambers of Commerce and the ISM are organising a workshop for EPV labelled companies with representatives from five ASEAN countries: Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Each country expert will present business opportunities in sectors covered by EPV companies and possible actions to address them. Personal appointments to respond to individual questions will also be organised.
Established in 83 countries with more than 32,000 member companies, the 113 French Chambers are the No. 1 global network of French companies and foreign companies with a link to France. Made up of multicultural teams, they have a strong field-based approach and a detailed knowledge of markets and practices garnered through activities locally and the ongoing sharing of information with member companies.
