Market Entry 

& Expansion

service icon-01.png

          With broad and deep local market knowledge and an international approach, Swiss Advice is supporting Swiss and other European SMEs and new businesses in entering the ASEAN market. The Asian Economic Community (AEC), especially Thailand, offers exciting opportunities for
enterprises seeking to expand their business. The combined ASEAN countries rank with regard to size, population and economic growth as the 5th largest market worldwide.

 

          Market entrants, however, are facing challenges, ranging from cultural business behaviour and language barriers, over legal frameworks to access to validated business data and sustainable sales channels. Establishing an operation in these countries can be very time-consuming and expensive. Swiss Advice helps their clients overcome these challenges and facilitates market access. With their proven methodology, Swiss Advice helps to minimize costs risks and maximize clients’ returns.

financials, a market entrance for SME’s & startups can be challenging.

For a designated period of time, we act as an extended business unit under your branding and control.

Supply Chain Management & Sourcing

Open markets enable companies to source materials and outsource production to suppliers in developing and emerging economies such as the ASEAN countries.

 

Compared to large firms, who benefit from cross-border supply chain management, small and medium enterprises (SME’s) are often lagging behind in recognizing how the integrated supply chain can drive astonishing changes in business processes, in order to achieve better results related to quality services, cost reduction and efficiency.

 

Swiss Advice aims to support SME’s with contemporary holistic services from demand, sourcing and procurement, production and logistics processes management to embedding environmental, governmental and socio-cultural aspects. In an initial phase, we mainly provide services in the areas of supply chain market analysis, strategic and low-cost country sourcing and procurement support.

Foreign Direct Investment

service icon-05.png

          The establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 has set up ASEAN as a single
market that facilitates free flows of goods; and freer flows of services, investment, capital and skilled labour within the region. Thailand and the Philippines, but not limited to other ASEAN countries have the potential for further progress and expansion. Some can even become the centre of a new economy in the region and serve investors as a link to other fast-growing economic markets.

 

          In the last few years, both countries experienced double-digit growth in foreign direct investments (FDI’s), supported by the promotion of specifically established & new industrial zones and various tax and non-tax incentives. Swiss Advice is focused on supporting SME’s with FDI Services for business enhancement or diversification.
