EDC investigates the opportunities and risks of three key Southeast Asian markets: Singapore, Indonesia, and Japan.
Ranked as the second freest economy in the world, Singapore’s prime location presents unexplored potential to Canadian exporters in the agri-food and seafood, cleantech, fintech, and life sciences sector.
Indonesia is one of the top 20 largest economies of the world and Canadian exports have only tapped into part of it. Opportunities lie in the cleantech, agri-food, oil and gas, and educational services.
Japan has the third-largest economy in the world and is Canada’s fourth-biggest customer. The CPTPP forecasts growth in Canada’s traditional exports to Japan.
As with all opportunities, there are unavoidable risks that companies will need to take. EDC will be conducting a market research mission to explore these risks so that Canadian companies can confidently take advantage of these markets.
