Events > Made in the UK, Sold to the Indo-Pacific: Meet the Experts

Why Indo-Pacific?


  • With the world's centre of economic gravity shifting eastwards, there is a rapid growth in South Asia and the Asia Pacific markets. 
  • These markets include:  
    • Asia Pacific: Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam.  
    • South Asia: Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, the Maldives.  
  • The South Asia and Asia Pacific regions are expected to account for a quarter (25%) of the global growth in the decades to come. 
  • In the decades to come it will be the crucible of solutions to many of the pressing global challenges that we face – from climate and biodiversity to maritime security and geopolitical competition linked to our rules and norms. 
  • The UK already sells over £84 billion worth of goods and services to these regions each year, which encompasses well known markets such as India, Singapore, Japan and Australia, as well as many more including Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
