Much of the wider Asia Pacific region is also a relocation hotspot, as global mobility surveys regularly show. Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong have been rated by the World Economic Forum as among the world’s top ten most competitive economies, the downturn in China’s manufacturing sector is creating opportunities for countries like Indonesia, and Vietnam is tipped as a future hub for the electronics industry.

Managing talent mobility in APAC poses unique challenges. This section includes the latest news, articles, tools and resources to help you develop solutions and achieve your business objectives. With contributions from specialists across the global mobility and relocation industry and the latest perspectives from regional conferences, we analyse key trends influencing Asia Pacific’s relocation and global mobility scene, including the impact of demographic and economic shifts.

We investigate the latest trends in inbound, outbound and domestic relocation – from key relocation destinations and industry sectors to immigration, talent management and commercial property – as well as the full range of employee and family support topics, including residential property, serviced apartments, and education and international schools.

HR and global managers with international assignees, whether they are on long-term, short-term, rotational, developmental or project-led assignments, will find practical advice and information. There’s also plenty of support for those setting up a business or a company office in the Asia Pacific region.
