Asia is the fastest growing region in the world, accounting for over 60% of global growth. Nonetheless, the Asian economy will almost certainly be swayed by both geopolitical risks in the region as well as political uncertainty in the western world.
The ongoing US-China trade war has disrupted trade flows and prompted business to rethink their supply chain strategies; volatility in the financial market will remain in light of tighter monetary policy in the advanced economies, coupled with further credit easing by China to counter its slowing economy; a looming no-deal Brexit will have serious implications for Asia, as companies prepare to relocate their operations and reevaluate investment planning.
In the shadow of risks, there is also opportunity. Investors will continue to seize on market potential in this fast-growing region. Market prospect for The Guangdong-HK-Macao Greater Bay Area remains high; ambitious infrastructure projects across Asia will present new investment possibilities in the real estate sector including residential and commercial markets.
