Supply Chains the Key to Growth in East Asia

29 May 2012

East Asian economic integration encompasses not just China but the entire region, according to an Austrade-commissioned report by Mr Manuel Panagiotopoulos of consultancy firm, Australian & Japanese Economic Intelligence.

The report, East Asian Economic Integration, suggests that the ongoing trend of regional integration will create opportunities for Australian companies, primarily in the services and mining sectors and niche manufacturing, as the extensive production networks intersect with numerous demands for services and products that are outsourced.  Demographic factors and macroeconomic and trade policies are also likely to produce long-term increases in per capita GDP in the region, such that consumer demand will become self-sustaining.

The report also suggests that Australian companies could expand their relationships with Japanese companies to enter the East Asian region as well as the importance for business of accessing regional value chains in a variety of sectors, including automotive, infrastructure, and manufacturing.
