Description

Where are the most desirable places for foreign investors and entrepreneurs to go in Southeast Asia?
I've ranked the BIG 10 against 13 key indicators for business success. Next, I've awarded scores (track-meet style scoring) and came out with a grand-total with which we can project the most 'desirable' locations in Southeast Asia for investment or business opportunities.

Business Environments of the ‘Next Wave’ Countries of Southeast Asia

PURPOSE • Analyze the market-readiness of the “next wave” Asian countries • Population Specifics • Infrastructure • FDI Restrictions • Perspective of the foreign investor or entrepreneur • Ranked key indicators 1 – 10, ‘track meet’ style scoring

Analysis & Ranking • Population • GDP per capita • net FDI • Economic Freedom Index • Electricity Penetration Rate • Internet Penetration Rate • Strength of Legal Rights • Total Railway/ Roadway Distance • Days to Clear Export Customs • Tax Expense (% of Revenue) • Labor Expense (% of Revenue) • Days to Start a Business • Days to Obtain Operating License

Thoughts on FDI • Mostly Loose Regulations on FDI • Foreign investments can constitute up to about 80% of enterprises • Most industries open to foreign investment (usually excluding defense, state interests, etc.) • Restrictive financial sectors • Bhutan, Myanmar (Burma), Laos relatively more restricted • Most recognize the need for FDI as an economic accelerant
