Think global but act local: Local content rules in the oil and gas sector
We all want things to be local. Whether its shops, banks (remember the HSBC advert about your local bank?), products etc. So it is only right that resource-rich countries should want to spread the wealth taken out of the ground locally.
Asia Pacific’s share of global economic output is likely to increase. Growing wealth and urbanization are driving consumption. Mainland China in particular, where we have offices in Beijing and Shanghai, has the largest GDP in Asia, and remains one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Most, if not all, international businesses have some relationship with China. Whatever your level of exposure or ambition, trust us to guide you.
Significant opportunities exist in the largest regional financial centers in Asia Pacific: Hong Kong and Singapore. Where you operate, you can also find us. From these four business critical locations, Dentons professionals can service your needs in other South East Asia markets such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand from our Singapore office and East Asia markets such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Philippines from our Hong Kong office.
Singapore is also the hub for our India practice. We advise on outbound investment as well as inbound investment flows into India.
Our teams on the ground in Asia Pacific are accustomed to working with an international mindset. They work in tandem with Dentons colleagues around the global to deliver pioneering solutions. Few firms could advise a Chinese state-owned construction enterprise on a toll road project in Jamaica leveraging project finance expertise from its Middle East offices. Or pull together a team for a sensitive compliance issue in India on behalf of a US client with specialist FCPA advise provided from New York, Indian lawyers from Kuwait and construction expertise from Hong Kong. Dentons can. In fact, these scenarios are our business norm.
