Asia will contribute over 60% of global growth this year. The region is home to the fastest growing middle class: a tech savvy and brand sensitive audience with increasing amounts of disposable income.

It is also a melting pot of cultures and levels of economic development fit for a wide range of trading and investment opportunities.

Yet Australian mid-size businesses are generally Asia-shy. Multinationals discovered the potential of Asian markets as far as 20 years ago; some have weathered epic failures, while others are by now landmarks across the region. However, mid-size businesses remain wary of expanding their operations to or even trading on Asian markets.

At Grant Thornton Australia we believe that mid-size businesses should choose Asia as a path to sustainable growth. We also understand, having supporting many clients throughout the geographical expansion process, that confidence and capability are built over time, and that mid-size businesses need a growth coach with the knowledge, tools and savvy to get them fit for Asia.
