Success in today's Asian market poses unique challenges for even the most experienced international companies. False perceptions, unfamiliar cultures and dependence on foreign sales representatives, discourage many companies from taking advantage of the opportunities that exist in the region. Now, more than ever before, it is vital to have pro-active representation on the ground to pursue on-going projects and identify new business opportunities.
