Despite recent uncertain market conditions, ongoing development and growth in the South East Asia region (including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar) continues to offer many opportunities for both Australian and South East Asian enterprises.


While the potential rewards can be significant, identifying and capitalising on these opportunities is not easy or straightforward.


Business and investment transactions between Australia and South East Asian countries raise a number of challenges arising from unfamiliar tax and regulatory regimes and business customs, as well as language and cultural differences.
