This report is based on a survey commissioned by Baker McKenzie and conducted by Mergermarket, the proprietary M&A intelligence provider. This survey aims to highlight opinions among corporate leaders on the complexities and challenges facing their business operations in Asia Pacific. Between January and February 2017, Mergermarket surveyed 150 CEOs, C-Suite officers, and key senior executives within their organizations to complete this analysis.

The survey focused on regional corporations and multinational firms with operations in Asia Pacific. Respondents work for companies of a variety of sizes, with annual revenues ranging US$500m to US$5bn. Their primary industries included: energy, mining and infrastructure (19%); information technology and communication (19%); healthcare (19%); financial institutions (19%); consumer goods and retail (19%); and manufacturing and industrials (3%).

Some figures may not sum to 100% due to rounding. In others, respondents were allowed to choose more than one option per question.
