Asian Perceptions

The below series of surveys have been conducted with the objective to determine the perceptions which business people hold on the business environment in various Asian countries.

Responses are invited from a wide range of organisations which have an interest in Asia, and the resultant responses are quite interesting.

As is our custom, there is very little interpretation of the results, rather just a reporting, and leaving it to the reader to provide the interpretation.

These surveys have been conducted by Glen Robinson and Mitchell Brown of AFG Venture Group.

Glen Robinson has advised and assisted many companies which wished to establish or enhance their commercial presence in Asia, and he can be contacted at
