Why are we doing this?

People need to be realistic about Southeast Asia and the challenges the region faces in further development. Many of the challenges could be turned into opportunities, with a fair view of the market as it is you can plan your investment to capture the right opportunities at the right time.

Alfonso de los Reyes, Head of Insights of Momentum Works.

We found that Southeast Asia has many opportunities ahead, but it also means the region is full of challenges. And this report seeks to give a fair representation and analysis of the region’s opportunities as well as challenges. 

Check out the infographic below to get a broad view of the performance, covering 6 countries in Southeast Asia, namely: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam.

Why these 9 indicators? 

There are thousands of indicators online today – all talking about different areas of industry, tech etc. In the end, we narrowed it down to 9 key indicators that we thought viewed as were the most relevant to why businesses behaved how they did. These indicators are linked to infrastructure, human capital, and connectivity. We went a few levels deeper to understand why, and then tried to connect the dots.

Who should read the report?

Decision makers who has interest to go deep into South East Asia – it could be an investor, a corporate strategist, an entrepreneur, or someone in academia. This report aims to give a a fair representation and analysis of the region’s current enablers, opportunities as well as challenges. We believe that challenges across Southeast Asia can be turned into development opportunities not only luck and timing, but also grit, determination and crucially, patience.
