According to The Executive Centre’s survey of more than 800 companies in Asia Pacific, there was continued growth of confidence in the economic outlook for the Asia Pacific region as a whole, with 90% of respondents confident or very confident in the region’s prospects for 2015, up from 83% of the previous year. The level of confidence in the outlook for China market remains strong with 76% of respondents confident or very confident in China’s prospects for the coming year. Whilst 33% of the respondents expected the global economy to expand, 55% expected the global economy to remain roughly the same as in 2014.

According to Gigi Liu, Corporate Director, Marketing & Communications of The Executive Centre, 85% of the respondents indicated their intention of continuing to leverage the advantages of using a serviced office for their business for 2015. The lower overheads, greater cash flow, the flexibility to expand or resize easily, mobility and convenience are the key drivers.

Gigi Liu commented, “The respondents were unanimous in their reasoning that a serviced office would help keep their overheads in check as well as enable them to enjoy a better cash flow and greater flexibility to react to opportunities as they arose. They were also conscious of the need to keep their operational hassles to a minimum to free up their manpower to concentrate on driving the business.”
