As businesses gradually emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic and the operating environment somewhat improved, 2023 ended on an encouraging note. Nonetheless, the outlook for 2024 will continue to be challenging as companies are navigating geopolitical developments and the associated market risks in the region.

How does China's regulatory environment have an impact on multinational companies' operations on the ground? As 'de-risking' from China continues, what are the risks and opportunities for companies?
