A few years ago the focus was on “getting prepared” and whilst that is still the case for many businesses, now, in many cases, the focus is more about “managing the business”. That is because the Asian business is here – and it’s different – and it’s having an impact!
In the past, the predominant focus has been on mainland China, but Chinese visitors come from across Asia – including Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and even from within Australia!

There is also the rise of India and Indonesia, along with the new Free Trade Agreements with South Korea and Japan to be considered.
