Winning in Asia: Creating long-term value is a partnership of Asialink Business, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and The Sid and Fiona Myer Family Foundation.

Two years in the making – Winning in Asia unpacks some of the commonly held misconceptions on doing business with the region. Delivering fresh evidence-based insights, it addresses significant questions raised by business leaders, investors and policymakers.

  • Does offshore expansion lead to superior returns?
  • Which companies have succeeded in Asia and what are their business models?
  • What capabilities do boards and senior executives need to enable corporate success in Asia?
  • How can we best manage stakeholders, brand and reputation in Asian markets?

A taskforce of pre-eminent Australian business leaders and experts have helped validate the direction, findings and recommendations of the report, which has been co-authored with leading authorities on doing business in the region, including Boston Consulting Group, Ellerston Capital and Cooper Investors.
