Future is Asian
Economic Power Distribution
The Nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) sector composition shows some very important points regarding the structure of the local economy.
In developed countries, the services are the biggest part of the GDP due to the high industry automatization rates. The opposite is true for the developing world where, due to the lack of economic industrialization, agriculture takes the first place.
Trading and Cooperation Development
The graph shows that export within Asia is much larger than other global regions and despite political tensions, the level of economic interconnectivity remains very high. The strengthening of the trade and investment links on the continent are improving the region’s resilience to uncertainties in the global trade environment. Asia’s fast recovery rate is helping it to maintain strong growth momentum amid the ongoing crisis and its continued integration and cooperation will underpin regional industrial and financial strength.
The first chart in this section shows cross-border Merger & Acquisition activity, which is a tactic used to rapidly expand to new markets on a global scale. During 2018, the United States was the leading acquiring country for cross-border M&A activity with over 4.7 thousand deals, accounting for almost 50% of the total cross-border deals made during 2018. The United Kingdom (UK) and France were the next largest acquiring nations with 775 and 448 deals respectively.
On the opposite side, the following graph shows the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) outpourings which is an interest as a controlling proprietorship in an organization in one nation, legitimately situated in another.
The hint of the speculation doesn't impact the definition: the venture might be made either "inorganically" by purchasing an organization in the objective nation or "naturally" by growing the activities of the current business in that state.
The chart shows that the first two places belong to Asian countries. The difference between the two charts is that by definition, Foreign Direct Investment includes "mergers and acquisitions, building new facilities, reinvesting profits earned from overseas operations, and intra company loans. So, therefore, M&A activities are only a specific part of FDI (only special types of contracts), while all Foreign Direct Investments have many more aspects.
