For this reason, a sound understanding of regional economies, communities and operational challenges is critical for any international business manager working in a global context.

Providing content and research that is accessible to local and international students, this text introduces core business concepts and comprehensively covers a range of key areas, including trade and economic development, dimensions of culture, business planning and strategy development, research and marketing, and employee development in cross-cultural contexts. Written by authors with industry experience and academic expertise, Contemporary International Business in the Asia–Pacific Region is an essential resource for students of business and management.
