As Asia braces for further economic progress with China at the helm, Asian countries are set to benefit from these strengthened partnerships, making it an appropriate time to consider investing in the Asia-Pacific region.

It is difficult to think of another part of the world that provides the diversity of investment opportunities available in the Asia-Pacific region.

The continent consists of many different countries from developed nations like Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Singapore to emerging markets like China, the world’s second-largest economy (thrice the size of the German economy or four times that of UK).

It can also offer exposure to frontier markets such as Indonesia and Philippines with a population of 261m and 103m respectively; a combination that is greater than the populations of either Western Europe or the US.

Asia is moving into an era of unprecedented urbanization. For instance, in just 30 years, nearly 500 million people will have moved from rural areas into China’s 622 main cities, and a predominantly rural country will have become nearly 60% urbanised. It is expected that around 58% of the world’s population or 4.6 billion people will live in urban areas by 2025, up from 3.9 billion currently.

Cities will hold the future of economic growth. For instance, even though Japan’s population has been declining since 2012, Tokyo continues to record strong population growth thanks to internal migration2. With more than 80% of global GDP generated in cities, urbanization can contribute to sustainable growth if managed well by increasing productivity, allowing innovation and new ideas to emerge.
