How PwC is helping Asia Pacific make the most of its growth opportunities
Amid growing headwinds, doing deals in Asia Pacific has become more complex. Our report reveals that dealmakers are under more pressure than ever before to deliver value in disruption but plenty of opportunities exist to generate premiums.
In the wake of COVID-19, employees across Asia Pacific are rethinking their lives, and work is topping the list. Our latest survey of nearly 18,000 workers across Asia Pacific indicates the Great Resignation is set to continue. Talent is on the move to a degree not seen before. Thousands of expats have left the region and many locals have returned home. Millions of workers have quit or changed jobs. Employees say they want more meaningful work, a better deal around fair pay, and to be able to bring their authentic selves to work. But are their leaders listening?
The Asia Pacific region is a powerhouse of global economic growth. The Asia Pacific region accounts for more than half of the world’s population, one fifth of the world's economy, and is expected to contribute about 60% of all global growth in the next 10 years (Source: WEF, UNFPA).
Such growth promises a rising tide of prosperity but as Asia Pacific businesses grow and mature, the challenges confronting them and broader society become more challenging and complex.
That’s why PwC Asia Pacific is dedicated to fostering new ways of working to solve the important problems.
We do this by bringing together people with diverse ways of thinking and giving them the space to approach problems from all angles. We know the collective power of difference and its ability to spur creative breakthroughs.
Here’s how PwC is using it to solve important problems.
"Old solutions won’t work for new problems, so we’re dedicated to thinking differently about the challenges and opportunities facing Asia Pacific. Our priority is to help our clients succeed in this very dynamic and ever-changing part of the world, and to help build trust in society."
Asia Pacific is changing. The strong fundamentals which dramatically improved prosperity and living standards across the region, can no longer be relied upon to address the inevitable continuous disruptions.
The era of passive growth is over; it is now time to act.
This is Asia Pacific’s time. Asia Pacific must now build a resilient future on five pillars: Advancing the digital economy, enabling regional enterprise growth, rebalancing supply chains and fostering innovation, future-proofing the labour force, and building towards a net-zero economy.
Many factors are fuelling a fundamental shift in the production and supply landscape, including maturing local suppliers and a fast-growing consumer base in Asia Pacific. Tapping into this opportunity requires rethinking supply chains, rebalancing them and making them more resilient to disruption.
