Despite recent economic, public health and geopolitical challenges, Asia companies with a long-term global vision can benefit from US expansion through organic growth and collaboration with US parties. The United States remains an attractive market for Asia companies to develop new partners, markets, products, and innovation. In addition, certain US parties are seeking Asia partners to grow their businesses and would welcome an Asia company’s investment and collaboration. This is especially true to the extent the initiative would help grow the US business in the US market and, through cooperative efforts with the Asia partner, enable a US company to expand its products and services in Asia markets.
While there are certainly many hurdles in an Asia company successfully completing a cross-border project in the United States or with US parties, Asia companies that are prepared to address US regulatory and other legal issues head-on have a greater chance of finding the right opportunity to grow their business while still managing deal execution risk.
