APAC is the part of the world in or near the Western Pacific Ocean. The region varies in size depending on context, but it typically includes many countries of East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceania, such as Singapore, Malaysia, China, Pakistan, India & Australia.
Singapore is a cosmopolitan city that offers global talents a high quality of life and endless career opportunities. A small city with no natural resources, Singapore has always known the importance of investing in human capital. Singapore was founded as an ideal central port from which many other destinations could be reached easily. Today, that accessibility remains unchanged. In a short span of 30 years, Singapore has grown into a thriving financial centre that serves not only its domestic economy but also the Asia Pacific region and the wider world.
To date, more than 7,000 multinational companies have set up base in Singapore, next to 100,000 small and medium enterprises. Business-owners all over the world regard Singapore as an ideal location to grow their businesses, with many of them using the country as a springboard to tap on other emerging markets in Asia. As Singapore strives to be an infocomm and media hub in Asia, the communications landscape is bustling with various initiatives and developments.
Many institutions in Singapore are experiencing a shortage of suitably skilled talents to support their rapid growth, industries still turn regularly to foreign-trained talent to make up for the shortfall. Naturally, employment opportunities in Singapore have grown exponentially for global citizens, as the country has always opened its doors to foreign talent who are highly sought-after across all industries.
Malaysia is a country on the move, spurred by high technology, a strong knowledge-base and capital-intensive industries. Home to a dynamic business environment, technologically innovative firms and a well-developed infrastructure. It is strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia and is one of the most technologically developed countries among industrialising nations in the ASEAN region, and its modern infrastructure is designed to serve the business community. One of the most appealing aspects of Malaysia is that its high growth economy is backed up by a strong business environment.
Malaysia has a multi-ethnic and multi-racial country with little or no discrimination. The three main cultures are the Malay, Chinese and Indian and this has resulted in a wide variety of cuisines, clothing and culture. From a world-class airport to a diverse and developed road network, Malaysia’s infrastructure is without doubt one of the most developed in Asia.
China is the great economic success story of the past 30 years. Since the “reform and opening-up” policy was introduced in 1978, China has changed beyond recognition. A Soviet-styled planned economy has transformed into a vibrant market-orientated economy and 600 million people have been lifted out of poverty. Between 1985 and 2010, 70% of the world population who had been lifted out of poverty were Chinese. Without China, the global poor population would have risen by 58 million. It is one of the world’s fastest developing economies in a country that's both rich in history and focused on the future.
It is a country where ancient monuments and the ultra-modern co-exist in harmony, where the culture is as influenced by its 21st-century economic expansion as by its old traditions. Indeed, the complex layers of life in China expose expats to a rich culture, a new way of living and a vast country to explore.
Living in Pakistan can give you an insight into one of the world’s newest republics and the lifestyle associated with a Muslim majority country. Both the scenery and architecture on offer in Pakistan are attractive and in some places breathtaking. Within the last 30 years, Pakistan has seen new additions to its infrastructure, including large motorways, airports, and seaports. These have all had a dramatically positive effect on domestic and international trading.
Australia is the fifth largest economy in the Asia-Pacific region, and the 12th largest economy in the world. It has had 24 years of uninterrupted economic growth. Australia’s GDP per capita at current exchange rates make its citizens among the world’s top 5 wealthiest. Australia has had one of the best-performing advanced economies in recent decades. Over 1,000 British businesses operate in Australia, including well-known companies like BP, HSBC, Virgin, British Airways and BT, as well as hundreds of small and medium sized companies. There are more British citizens in Australia than in any other foreign country. 1.2 million Britons are permanent residents in Australia and over 600,000 visit every year.
A large number of expats who move to Australia do so with their children. The country is an excellent place to raise a family as properties are often larger, there is more scope for children to spend recreational time outdoors and the country offers a good range of schooling options. Furthermore, expats living in Australia will also have access to exceptional healthcare facilities in both the public and private systems.
The government places a high premium on skills and enforces equally stringent measures to keep Australian immigration levels under control. So while Australia is a popular destination for expatriates, a strict screening process picks out those professionals with the skills desired to keep the economy in good health, the population levels low, and the quality of life high for all citizens.
