Productivity and Growth

The economic landscape has fundamentally shifted and many of the past drivers of growth are no longer as relevant today. Volatility in commodity prices, ageing populations, disruptive technologies, new trade deals, the rising consuming class in emerging markets, resource scarcity concerns, labour market shocks and various other forces are combining to create a new age of uncertainty.

AlphaBeta works with governments and corporations across the Asia Pacific region to help them adapt to this evolving economic landscape. We work with governments on topics ranging from productivity improvement and sector strategy to regional economic integration; we work with corporations to identify future sources of growth for their businesses, and develop market entry strategies.
