The study, titled The New Asian Champions, was conducted among an elite group of high-ranking business executives and opinion leaders, and its findings were released in Dalian, China, where the World Economic Forum is holding a major conference.
Among the highlights:
- 40 percent of respondents see "a great deal of opportunity" in the current economic environment;
- 67 percent believe that a "great deal of opportunity" exists five years from now, given globaleconomic trends;

While most respondents (72 percent) still view a low cost base and access to inexpensive labor as the number-one advantage of Asian companies, 35 percent saw a lack of profile and branding as their single greatest weakness. And a collective 48 percent of participants expressed concern about the impact of the global economic downturn and a range of other issues that includes lack of familiarity with foreign markets, cultural and linguistic barriers and global availability of international distribution channels.
"Clearly, the New Asian Champions have unprecedented opportunities to succeed globally," said Dave Senay, president and chief executive officer of Fleishman-Hillard. "However, there is no room for complacency among Asia's top companies. The leaders we surveyed by no means view Asia's global leadership as automatic. Now is the time for Asian MNCs with global ambitions to invest in their brands and in differentiating their products, services and competitive advantages in business and consumer markets around the world."
The survey results also indicate that, while such Asian brands as Lenovo, Tata Group The Tata Group is India's largest conglomerate company, with revenues in 2005-06 of Rs. 967,229 million (US $21.9 billion), the equivalent of about 2.8% of India's GDP, and a market capitalisation of US $57.6 billion now (only 28 of the 96 Tata Group companies are publicly listed). , Hyundai, Daewoo and NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors.

For example, 72 percent agree with the statement, "An investment in communications will be necessary for Asian multinational corporations to compete in the global marketplace," while only 15 percent believe that these companies have all the marketing and branding expertise they need to compete globally.
The study revealed other communications-related challenges, as well, with 58 percent of respondents agreeing that "Asian multinational corporations need more visibility to compete with companies in the U.S. and Europe." Only 11 percent of respondents say that companies from the region have the public affairs expertise to succeed in the global arena.
"This survey's findings mirror my own experiences advising companies in Asia," commented Patrick Chovanec, assistant professor, School of Economics and Management, Tsinghua University

"Asian multinationalshave demonstrated their mastery of the production process, advanced technologies, and succeeding at home. Many agree that these companies produce the best quality for the lowest prices worldwide.
