Southeast Asia offers a rich environment for business. Energy, banking and finance, e-commerce and infrastructure for transportation and power distribution are among a variety of areas poised for explosive growth. With the rapid growth of the Southeast Asian market, many business enterprises, public and private, are now expanding or seriously considering expanding their business internationally, including to Canada. Fasken is well positioned to bridge the opportunities between Southeast Asia and Canada.
