          With broad and deep local market knowledge and an international approach, Swiss Advice is supporting Swiss and other European SME and new businesses to enter into ASEAN markets. The Asian Economic Community (AEC), and especially Thailand offer 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 of validated business data and sustainable sales channels.

 

          Establishing an operation in these countries can be very time-consuming and expensive. Swiss Advise’s expertise helps their clients overcome these challenges and facilitates market access. With our proven methodology we minimize costs & risks and maximize our clients’ returns.

          Business expansion through mergers & acquisitions is another valuable way to enter ASEAN countries. Swiss Advice supports SME’s and new businesses in setting-up M&A and joint ventures and also matches innovative new ASEAN businesses with Swiss companies. Our experienced team applies a proven analysis and simulation method coupled with the maintenance of a broad network within ASEAN. We assist companies throughout the acquisition processor in establishing a joint venture. To assure successful M&A or JV’s we are linking acquisition strategy, due diligence and merger integration.

          We accompany our clients after a successful transaction as a local resource with advice and execution on an operational level or for strategic adjustments as needed.

          ASEAN, in particular, South East Asia contains the majority of the fastest growing economies, and its growing middle-income population is attracting not only large-scale companies to expand their businesses in the region. However, after considering the limited network, know-how, resources and financials, a market entrance for SME’s & startups can be challenging. With our local knowledge, expertise and strong network we can facilitate a smooth market entry and thereby commercialize your products and services within ASEAN countries.

 

          For a designated period of time, we act as an extended business unit under your branding and control. Under the umbrella of Swiss Advice in Bangkok, we can minimize market entry risk by doing the heavy lifting for you. With our support, you can keep initial investments low and reduce time spent exploring new markets in the region.

          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.

          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 specific established & new industry zones and various tax and non-tax incentives. Swiss Advice is focused on supporting SME’s with FDI Services for business enhancement or diversification.
