I’m Doug Hartley, president of Focus Asia Market Entry. We guide small-to-mid-sized companies to enter Asian markets well prepared to secure and build long-term sources of sales revenues.

Why is Focus Asia offering this service to SMEs? Simple. Because, throughout years of living -and doing business across Asia, we’d see tremendous sales, and money-making opportunities everywhere. North America has a foothold in Asia, but Canada has been missing out on riding the wave of the Asian market. It’s a lost opportunity, and they’re losing money now.

Fortunately, NE/SE Asia is projected to remain the world’s fastest growing economic region.  There will be more opportunities to come; many being ideal for North American SMEs. However, the companies that will do best are those that have received guidance and are well-prepared.

SMEs can sell into Asia. and make some great money, too.  However, doing business in Asia is different. And, because of this, most companies could use some help along the way.

We do the market research to identify the most suitable prospects, distributors, online influencers, or end consumer market segments. We then arrange for introductory meetings with key Asian decision makers. First, on-line due to Covid and then personally in Asia to showcase products and close sales. Either way the company’s products or services are placed directly in front of prospective buyers.
