Amid rising global trade tensions and political uncertainties, Chinese investments around the world have plummeted. In 2018 alone, Chinese investments in the United States dropped nearly 90%, and dropped over 70% in North America and Europe.

In this increasingly hostile environment for Chinese overseas investment, ASEAN remains a relative bright spot and a compelling zone of opportunities. Close to China geographically and in many cases culturally, with a rising consumer class, improving infrastructure and strengthening regional economic and trade ties, ASEAN is expected to see a surge in Chinese investment over the next decade.

Singapore is seen as the first port of call for many Chinese investors seeking expansion outside of its borders. Singapore serves as the ideal strategic base for expansion into the wider ASEAN region, because of its ease of incorporation and doing business, development incentives, excellent infrastructure and highly skilled workforce.

In conjunction with China Money Network, we will bring together local and regional corporate leaders, regulators and top dealmakers from multi-national companies to discuss and launch a comprehensive report on accessing the ASEAN opportunity through Singapore as a gateway.
