Asia Pacific Outlook, 2020: Continued Tensions Between the US & China will Prompt Companies to Re-Evaluate their Asia Footprints - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 18, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 18, 2019--

The “2020 Asia Pacific Outlook” country profile has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Asia Pacific will maintain its position as the world’s fastest-growing region in 2020. However, as the global outlook clouds over and risks tilt toward the downside, the region will see heightened levels of uncertainty. Continued tensions between the US and China will disrupt supply chains, draw investment plans into question, and prompt companies to re-evaluate their Asia footprints. These tensions will be exacerbated by a substantial inventory overhand, which will weigh on investment, employment, and wages and put downward pressure on the prices of tradeable goods. As APAC executives pot a course through this shifting environment, they should eschew a business as usual mindset. Instead, they should focus on actions that will lay a foundation for sustainable growth: improving internal alignment, influencing localization discussions, anticipating Chinese competition, increasing customer centricity, and revisiting their route to market.
