Korea raised taxes and the minimum wage in the name of economic growth. So far, it has not worked out as planned. Growth has slowed down, unemployment has risen and business owners are complaining. 

The biggest problem is for small and medium size businesses, which are often unable to pass higher costs on to their customers.

News from our Asian tour

Airport Authority of Hong Kong…

is spending HKs141.5 billion to build a third runway and new passenger concourse. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2024 increasing the number of passengers using the airport by 30 million a year. In 2018, the airport handled more than 74 million passengers, a record for a single year. 

Ground Handling companies in Hong Kong…

tell that it’s not unusual that over 50% of their personnel will leave the company before they have worked one year. This leads to a challenge to provide just-on-time training effectively and get new employees onboard as quickly as possible. We are providing perfect solutions to address this challenge.
