JABS: How would you characterize the consulting industry in Asia? Do you see any differences from the West? A: Consulting is still a relatively new industry in Asia. Obviously, it's more established in more developed economies such as Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. In these places, the economies are more open and dynamic. Many executives are trained overseas and they are more receptive to professional consulting services. But, overall, consulting is still a fairly new service in Asia. When I think about consulting in Asia, it reminds me of what I understand Europe was like in the 1960s, when consulting just got started there and when some major international organizations started to use professional advisory services.
