Asia is home to more than half of the world’s population and accounts for a growing share of the world’s consumption, global flows of trade, capital, talent, and innovation. With a burgeoning middle-class and a youthful demographic, the region is on track to top 50 percent of global GDP by 2040. The region is a global innovation hub and remains a key market for the private sector with a broad range of investment opportunities, particularly in key sectors such as information and communications technology (ICT), agriculture, education, health and life sciences, and defense and security. South and Central Asian countries in particular hold importance for global businesses not only for their economic potential but also for their role in facilitating regional stability and security. Access to vast natural resources, particularly energy reserves, is critical for economic growth. BCIU offers members and stakeholders a myriad of opportunities, access and insights through tailored sectoral-specific engagements with a range of stakeholders across Asia, and aims to provide strategic support that expands our partner’s reach.
