Following a year of turbulent change, 2021 presents opportunities for Asian economies and businesses to reposition and rebuild firmer foundations for recovery and growth.

Meanwhile, the global economic system is undergoing seismic shifts, as globalisation gives way to a new era of sluggishness and major economies increasingly compete in economic, technological, geopolitical, and ideological spheres, in many instances with a goal of putting domestic interests first. A patchwork of trade and investment agreements shows the emergence of new alliances across the Asian region, with new implications for how multinational companies organise their businesses in the different markets they serve.
