Our Company



Australian businesses make three key mistakes when engaging in China – firstly, that they don’t come to China often enough; secondly, restricting themselves to Beijing and Shanghai; and finally, not properly grasping the significance of relationship building in China.

Geoff Raby, former Australian Ambassador to China


When the world talks about the economic growth of Asia they generally refer to its increasing affluence, rapidly expanding consumer markets and business potential. However, while many foreign companies are actively entering the region, the truth is that for large and small enterprises trying to win the business – there are many more failures than successes.

The other truth is that there is generally a very poor understanding of the many markets of Asia “today”. Too often senior management and owners are relying on past experience or out of date advice and information.

To understand Asia “today” we need to deal with the dynamics of a region that is constantly re-inventing itself.  Market intelligence of two years ago is already out of date.  Keeping pace with the changing business environment is what Fastrak Asian Solutions does best.

Our difference is that we are “hands-on” and practical and believe that personal involvement and understanding at senior levels is a critical element to success.

Our services include practical training seminars; tailored strategies for business development, product delivery adjustment and marketing in Asia; introduction to influential business contacts both in Australia and in-market; as well as high-level market visits.

Our expertise and contacts cover nine markets in North and South Asia including: Greater China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

Given the pace of change across Asia and the emerging competition, foreign companies need solutions that fast track their entry and increase their commercial effectiveness in these markets.  Establishing strong, personal business relationships and developing detailed market understanding at senior management levels are critical elements for success.

Our Managing Director

Our Managing Director


Fastrak Asian Solutions Managing Director, Richard Beere, has extensive high-level contacts across the region and a reputation for helping businesses to win in Asia. Richard established the company after an extensive career leading Australian tourism expansion into Asia.  The innovative approaches he developed for the tourism industry have proven to be equally valid for other sectors including professional services and education.

Richard Beere has spent nearly half of his more than 30 years professional experience working and living in Asia in senior management positions, with responsibilities covering the broader Asian region from Japan to India. This has included 3 years living in Japan, 2 terms in Singapore of 4 and 7 years, and another 4 years working in Hong Kong.

A confessed “Asiaphile” with a passion for building bridges between peoples, cultures and markets, Richard is also a senior manager with a proven track record of delivering above target business results, revenue growth, and successful market development strategies.

Richard was part of the team that succeeded in making Australia the first western destination to gain Approved Destination Status in China, and was instrumental in the development of Tourism Australia’s original China Development Plan.

He is a “facilitator” by nature and is motivated by thinking outside the box. His business experience provides him with a powerful and unique set of skills, experience, and attributes including international business, multi-market cultural understanding, Government and commercial arenas, strategy, management, marketing, and communications.

In 2011 he received the Outstanding Individual Contribution to the Industry Award from the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) in recognition of his efforts, especially in regard to Asia.

He is currently Managing Director of Fastrak Asian Solutions, a company he established in 2011 to “help companies build business with Asia” and whose client list includes National, State, and Regional tourist bodies; national tourism operators; and SMEs.
