The complexities facing corporations across Asia Pacific will have different effects on different industries. Taking a more micro view, CEOs and their teams highlight several trends and challenges that will shape their specific sectors going forward (Figures 13 & 14). Energy, mining and infrastructure and healthcare companies face compliance and environmental issues stemming from changing regulations and the threat of natural disasters. As respondents have mentioned, changes to existing legal regimes have added serious costs to energy companies, making extraction of precious resources an increasingly costly endeavor. Changes in medical standards and healthcare practices mean stricter compliance regimes in healthcare, which are imposing higher legal and restructuring fees on corporations.
