uS’s repor t identifies the key industries and opportunities in the frontier SEA markets, with large demand for innovative solutions and technologies and high growth. “FDI is really booming after 2012 and what is driving this are these sectors; construction & infrastructure, transport, energy and food & beverage (F&B). These are also where we see potential for Swedish companies, and that are also leaders in these sectors.” “There is very poor transport infrastructure in these countries today. And that is where there are large needs and where global funding agencies like ADB and World Bank are funding projects in airpor ts, roads and por ts,” continued Vlad. The booming infrastructure and constant development will require various solutions, where there are opportunities for large and midsized Swedish companies with innovative and efficient infrastructure solutions. In the transport sector there is high growth across the transpor t segment, from passenger cars to commercial vehicles. For instance, Laos’ strategic position connecting China to South-east Asia will drive infrastructure and constr uction, driving demand for heavy tr ucks and commercial vehicles. And in Cambodia rising disposable incomes will drive dealership expansions and new vehicle sales.
