Barriers and opportunities in cross-border construction business in Asia Pacific
As fast-growing economies across Asia Pacific surge ahead with rapid urbanization, infrastructure construction and renewal, what are the main commercial and local legal issues to consider when contracting in each Asian jurisdiction?
Baker McKenzie’s Asia Pacific Construction Guide considers and provides comparative answers to 10 important construction sector questions across 12 key jurisdictions in Asia Pacific and highlights recent commercial opportunities and regulatory developments such as:
- Infrastructure spending occurring in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam
- How China’s One Belt, One Road initiative is influencing projects in the region and stimulating growth
- Jurisdictions and sectors experiencing construction booms or capacity constraints, offering opportunities for foreign contractors to consider entering the market (eg, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan)
- Preferences for particular types of procurement methods, construction contracts and dispute resolution methods in differing jurisdictions
