...liberalization became a top priority. Whereas previous governments had pushed for the liberalisation of Japan, one of Clintons main foreign policy objectives was the liberalisation of the Asian economies. This process was pushed forth in Asia with such vehemence because the region held a lot of investment opportunities for American Banks, Brokerages, and other financial sector businesses. Unfortunately, Asia�s economies were not structurally ready to deal with the influx of capital that was headed their way. They had weak banking and legal systems that were unable, or unwilling, to regulate the flow of foreign capital in the country. The Americans eventually persuaded Koreato relax its capital flow regulations by giving it the option of joining the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Even then, Korea was concerned that its financial institutions may not be able to deal with an influx of foreign capital. One fatal mistake that Korea, as well as other Southeast Asian countries made, was that they opened their capital markets in the wrong way. They did not allow long term investments in Korean companies, but rather, only short-term investments that could be removed easily. One example of the sort of quick investments that were being made in Asia can be seen in the Japanese. In Japan the interest rates were very low, so investors would borrow at 2 percent and then convert their currency into Thai baht. Due to the interest rate differential, they were able to......

...eliminating waste found in Toyota’s Japanese, North American and European facilities. What other risk factors are present with the management of a regionally constructed and globally linked production structure? First, all production does not have to rely on components sourced, which is expensive. Second, operating in emerging economies can also bring associated risks, particularly with regard to disruption of the supply chain. Moreover, Toyota’s in East Asia has emerged from the necessity of dealing with the complex nature of the regional division of labor and of a need for better coordination of supply chains and parts complementation under AFTA. 3. Given Toyota’s close coordination of the value chain, in particular its relations with component suppliers, and commitment to localization, is this a model that other automakers can emulate? I think other automakers can draw on this successful case. There are many developing countries can be component suppliers of the world, especially in South America, Africa and South Asia. Once the company gets suppliers, it can promote their cars not only in its own country but also in the other places of the world. The whole world gets closer than before, and more and more people speak the same language- English. Committing to localization is not tough nowadays....

Budget airlines usually land at and take-off from secondary airports, do not provide in-flight meals or refreshments, and may not even offer numbered seat allocation. Their ticket prices are fixed and non-refundable in case of a cancellation or no-show”. (i) 3.2. Looking at the Organization AirAsia is one of the fastest growing airline companies in the world, with a reputation as a low-cost, ‘no frills’ airline. It was originally a government owned business; yet, due to heavy debt, it was bought by former Time Warner executive Tony Fernandes in 2001, and this is where the real story begins. Their vision, under the slogan "Now Everyone Can Fly", is “To be the largest low cost airline in Asia and serving the 3 billion people who are currently underserved with poor connectivity and high fares”,(ii) and their mission is, under the banner of 'Affordable Airfares', “To attain the lowest cost so that everyone can fly with AirAsia,” without any compromise to Flight Safety Standards, as well as, creating a world wide recognizable brand with a ‘family’ atmosphere within working conditions for employees.

Within two years, Tony Fernandes had gained recognition with numerous awards, including ‘CEO of the Year’ by Business Times and American Express and......

Bancassurance in Asia

...Bancassurance in Asia APRIA Annual Conference, Seoul 24 July 10:20 – 11:50 am Clarence Wong, Swiss ReinsuranceCompany, Hong Kong Summary Bancassurance has seen rapid development in Asia over the past decade, mainly driven by deregulation in many key markets. It was virtually non-existent in 2000, but has risen in importance since to account for a significant share of distribution. The main business model has also diversified from simple distribution agreement to joint ventures and integrated financial services provisions. There is no doubt that bancassurance has been a great success in Asia over the past decade. However, from the perspective of an industry practitioner, I would like to draw on three important yet inter-related issues regarding the future of bancassurance. First, the economics of bancassurance to insurance companies.Second, the prospects of non-life distribution through banks.Third, the role bancassurance in closing the region's protection gap. Let me cover the first issue. In many markets, particularly emerging Asian markets like China and India, insurers have successfully leveraged of bancassurance to maintain or expand their market share in the early phase of market liberalization and deregulation. It is, on the other hand, well-known that insurers complaint all the time about the high distribution commission associated with bank channels. There are other constraints like higher lapse ratio and difficulties in selling complicated (higher-margin)......

Asia Crisis

...on the mechanisms through which the financial crisis in East Asia caused sharp contractions in economic activity. In most financial crises, and particularly in the East Asian crises, the key factor that causes asymmetric information problems to worsen and launch a financial crisis is a deterioration in balance sheets, particularly those in the financial sector. As in earlier financial crises, such as in Chile in 1982 or Mexico in 1994-95 where a similar analysis applies,1 the story starts with financial liberalization that resulted in the lending boom which was fed by capital inflows. Once restrictions were lifted on both interest-rate ceilings and the type of lending allowed, lending increased dramatically. As documented in Corsetti, Pesenti and Roubini (1998), Goldstein (1998), World Bank (1998) and Kamin (1999), credit extensions in the Asian crisis countries grew at far higher rates than GDP. The problem with the resulting lending boom was not that lending expanded, but that it expanded so rapidly that excessive risk-taking was the result, with large losses on loans in the future. There are two reasons why excessive risk-taking occurred after the financial liberalization in East Asia. The first is that managers of banking institutions often lacked the expertise to manage risk Indeed, the analysis here explains why as pointed out in Kamin (1999), the crises in Chile in 1982, Mexico in 1994-95 and East Asia in 1997-98 bear so much similarity to each other, in contrast...

...sharing on interest on LIBOR+4.50% rate of interest). On the other hand, USD purchase outstanding of the client as on 12.06.14 is USD 1.84 million which is equivalent to BDT 143.52 million. The USD Purchase/LDBP limit of the client is BDT 350.00 million and if we assume that the client will avail 50% of limit in USD, then outstanding of USD purchase will prevail at USD 2.24 million all the year round. Therefore, expected earnings loss by the branch from the USD purchase will be BDT 3.49 million in a year (2% sharing on interest on LIBOR+4.50% rate of interest). Loss of PAD interest at the time of opening EDF L/C: There is a time gap between the payment of EDF L/C by the CTSU in our favor for the client and release of fund by Bangladesh Bank. This gap period is usually 15 days and we charge PAD interest on the client for this 15 days. During 01.01.2014 to 31.05.2014, total EDF L/C of Saiham Cotton Mills Ltd. & Faisal Spinning Mills Ltd. was USD 8.744 million which is expected to be USD 20.00 million for the both clients in 2014. If we charge 15 days PAD interest on USD 20.00 million equivalents to BDT 1560.00 million, then total interest will be BDT 9.10 million in 2014. Primarily, CTSU is using fund of treasury for settlement of EDF L/C before release of Bangladesh Bank’s fund and charging PAD interest on the client and crediting to the branch for paying back the interest to the treasury. However, we are crediting 12% interest out of 14% interest to our income......

Credit Mangement Policy by Bangladesh Bank and Its Implementation by Bank Asia Limited

...years back Bangladesh Bank undertook a project to review the global best practices in the banking sector and examines in the possibility of introducing these in the banking industry of Bangladesh. Four ‘Focus Groups’ were formed with participation from Nationalized Commercial Banks, Private Commercial Banks & Foreign Banks with representatives from the Bangladesh Bank as team coordinators to look into the practices of the best performing banks both at home and abroad. These focus groups identified and selected five core risk areas and produced a document that would be a basic risk management model for each of the five 'core' risk areas of banking. The five core risk areas are as follows- a) Credit Risks; b) Asset & Liability / Balance Sheet Risks; c) Foreign Exchange Risks; d) Internal Control & Compliance Risks; and e) Money Laundering Risks. Bangladesh Bank in one of it’s circular (BRPD Circular no.17) advised the commercial banks of Bangladesh to put in place an effective credit approval and monitoring system by December, 2003 based on the guidelines sent to them.

...Porter Five Forces of Air Asia Porter’s Five Forces Threat of new Entrants Threat of new entry is moderate, because it requires high capital to support and government barrier is high such as the air service agreement can build barriers to those new entrants. The degree of barriers to entry depends on the strength of:- • Customers have a little bit of brand loyalty. If customers of AirAsia do not have brand loyalty, then the threat of new entrants will be very high. But the higher numbers of competitors in the industry also will decrease AirAsia’s customer loyalty. Due to most of the travelers prefer low cost. New competitors which want to come in the industry need to spend a little to compete with AirAsia. • Higher Capital Requirement The airline industry needs large volume of start-up capital. The cost of setting up of offices, buying or leasing air craft, hiring pilots and others staffs like air stewardess and etc incur a high start-up cost. So that, the threat if AirAsia is low. • Offered different product AirAsia offer different product to compare with other competitors in Asia, for example, Bangkok Airways, Tiger Airways, and Air Philippines. • Government Legislation Air Asia very difficult gets a new route from government because Malaysian Airlines System (MAS) has been protected by Malaysia government on the route to Sydney and Seoul Incheon. Therefore, it will affect the time line set by AirAsia and the most important is also influence their profit.......

...Lumpur: CIMB-Principal Asset Management Berhad (“CIMB-Principal”) today launched the CIMB-Principal Strategic Income Bond Fund (“the Fund”), a fund that allows investors to capitalise on Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East’s improving credit conditions given the high potential of more rating upgrades. Campbell Tupling, Chief Executive of CIMB-Principal Asset Management said, “The demand for high-quality bonds in Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East continues to remain high given the low interest rates outlook in the US and Europe, and this should support bond prices for the next few years. In addition, the slower economic recovery of these developed markets is shifting investment appetite to Asia. Combined with the likelihood of bond rating upgrades, this will mean potential good returns for investors who want to invest in regional high growth prospects in a stable manner.” Post-financial crisis, bonds remain the preferred asset class for more conservative investors because it is less volatile than equities. Asia, for example, remains a sound investment destination with rapid urbanisation, as a younger and higher population growth will necessitate greater infrastructure spending in the coming years. This provides the golden opportunity to profit from the economic power of Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East. “By taking a three year buy-and-hold strategy, the Fund is buffered from interest rate fluctuations. This means returns will......

...There are two views that created the crisis, one is fundamental view and the other one is panic view. Hot money is money that flows between financial markets to get the highest short-term interest rates possible. Capital inflow is increase in the amount of money available from foreign sources for the purchase of local capital assets such as buildings, lands, and machinery. IMF intervention until now still become controversial, two of well-known economist which are Stiglitz and Sachs said that because of IMF intervention the crisis has become much worse rather than before. Moreover, we will discuss about global crisis, this crisis happened in 2007. This started in US because of housing mortgage, and also credit crunch. The difference between Asia crisis and the Global crisis also will be discussed. Asian Crisis Hot money is “Money that flows regularly between financial markets as investors attempt to ensure they get the highest short-term interest rates possible. Hot money will flow from low interest rate yielding countries into higher interest rates countries by investors looking to make the highest return” (Investopedia, 2011). Capital Inflow is “increase in the amount of money available from foreign sources for the purchase of local capital assets such as buildings, lands, and machinery” (Business Dictionary, 2011). According to Juzhong Zhuang and J. Malcolm Downing (2002) the first attributes that started financial disturbance in some Asian countries in 1997 and......

Business in Asia

...Introduction The Asian Financial Crisis occurred during the year 1997-1998, and is explained well in brief by Galina Hale “East Asian countries experienced severe banking crises. Nonperforming loan ratios skyrocketed because of prior excessive risk taking and most banks had to be recapitalized by their governments.” (Hale 2011, p.3) After ten years, The Asian Financial Crisis was followed by The Global Financial Crisis in 2008. “The precise genesis of the global crisis remains subject to debate. (Lin 2012, Treichel 2012, p.3) “We will argue that global imbalances were the result of the large excess demand in the U.S. over an extended period—the financing of which was made possible by the reserve currency status of the US dollar. “This excess demand resulted from both the public debt” and “the overconsumption by households.” (Lin 2012, Treichel 2012, p.3) “As shock waves of the global financial crisis (GFC) reached East Asia in autumn 2008 immediately after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September, the region faced the task of evaluating and reassessing the economic cooperation efforts of the previous ten years” (Katada 2011, p.274) Thus by evaluating and reassessing the economic cooperation of those previous ten years East Asia was able to maintain its flexibility during the Global Financial Crisis. The aim/purpose of this assignment is to show how the Asian economies have performed during and after the Global Financial Crisis, in relation to the structural......
