Product Overview   

The textile and clothing industries of Asean - the Association of South East Asian Nations, including Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Brunei - are among the fastest growing in the world. But while the rapid rise in their apparel exports poses a major threat to established companies in Japan and the Western world, it also presents opportunities.

The report focuses on the textile and clothing industries in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Brunei, and features: profiles of companies in the region; opportunities for joint ventures; competitive analysis; political and economic profiles; and details of investment and export incentives. It examines the opportunities for investments, identifies the countries which are most likely to benefit from the shift in resources from Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea, and assesses the likely effects of the liberalisation of trade as quotas are phased out
