I recently visited Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) where an approved $7 billion high-speed rail has caught international headlines.
Just back from Sri Lanka looking at infrastructure and supplychain developments. The country should be a beneficiary of the US-China trade dispute as global buyers and manufacturers look to low-cost alternatives.
West Java’s manufacturing base has so far captured only niche global export opportunities. However, that will change as US-China trade tensions grow and local infrastructure gradually improves.
Hong Kong’s 350km p/h high-speed rail link to Shenzhen and Guangzhou opens this Sunday. The rail line is attracting a great deal of media attention. But what is the real impact on business?
Just back from Ho Chi Minh assessing industrial park opportunities. Vietnam has captured more than 2% global market share in 100+ key products since 2010, largely due to China’s rising costs.
We’ve just returned from Kyrgyzstan where we had an opportunity to inspect the country’s road upgrading program and supply-chain opportunities.
Good to visit Kazakhstan again and Khorgos Eastern Gates, the country’s special economic zone (SEZ) and key logistics hub linking China, Central Asia, and Europe.
I had a chance to visit Dongguan’s Songshan Lake High-Tech Industrial Park. The park is situated 40 kilometres from Shenzhen in southern China.
I spent time this week at the Umer Group’s textile and footwear factories outside Lahore, Pakistan. The factory is indicative of Pakistan’s supply-chain oportunities
Most impressed by the under-construction China-Laos railway project. The 414km railway will connect Kunming, a major city in Southwest China, with Vientiane, Lao’s capital.
