PwC strengthens foothold in Asia Pacific

4 September 

PwC today announced that it is boosting its stronghold in the Asia Pacific region. An enhanced collaborative structure will enable PwC member firms in the region to more easily provide integrated business solutions and deep industry expertise to businesses seeking growth in one of the most promising and fastest growing regions in the world.

As at formation, PwC Asia Pacific involves collaboration between member firms across the region that have operations in Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Macau Mainland China, Malaysia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam, totaling around 1,700 partners and over 30,000 people.

Raymund Chao, Chairman, PwC Asia Pacific said “Globalisation and digitisation have disrupted many industries and sectors across the world at an unprecedented scale and pace. Markets and organisations across the Asia Pacific region are seeking solutions to position themselves for growth beyond their own borders, mitigating risks and transforming their businesses in areas exposed to disruptive forces.

“Our PwC Asia Pacific collaboration will enable us to align in a stronger manner as we execute on our purpose to build trust and solve important problems. This facilitates greater impact for our clients and helps us to partner with them in maximizing their success across the whole region.”

According to the IDC MarketScape, Asia Pacific clients consider PwC to be the most capable firm when it comes to supporting agility, increasing productivity, transforming processes, managing risk, and driving process and cost optimisation.

Our PwC Asia Pacific collaboration, when coupled with new technologies and data driven solutions, will allow PwC member firms in the region to deliver more powerful and market relevant solutions both domestically and in pan regional service scenarios. This will benefit not only PwC’s clients but also allow PwC to offer an even greater value proposition for its people looking for experience on international projects serving enterprises across key growth markets in Asia and the Pacific.

Luke Sayers, CEO, PwC Australia said “Asia Pacific is the fastest growing and most opportunity rich region in the world and the growth potential for Australian businesses is substantial and still very much untapped. Adopting a regional approach allows us to source the most relevant skills and bring that to the client opportunity wherever it exists throughout the region.

“Across the Asia Pacific, PwC's member firms already enjoy strong leadership positions in many of their domestic markets, so this collaboration serves to build from that strength and create an even more compelling proposition for PwC across the region.”
