Vision, transparency and focus give Asia’s best an edge
With Asia already suffering from the global economic slowdown before September 11, which companies manage to stand out as the region’s most resilient performers? Euromoney’s sixth annual poll of Asia’s best companies explores which are the cream of the crop and why they are regarded as the region’s leaders.
|Analysts favour those Asian companies whose managements
have clear plans to cope with economic downturn and a
record of delivery
Euromoney polled credit and equity analysts of banks and research houses throughout Asia to nominate which are, in their view, the top companies in Asia. We not only asked them about the companies with the best business strategy but also inquired about those with the most improved performances, the most transparent financial accounts, the most accessible senior management, and those that demonstrate the best treatment of minority shareholders.
Themes shared among successful companies in Asia include outsourcing to manage costs and expanding operations to markets such as Europe.
Infosys Technologies is once again rated as India's best company as well as dominating the IT/software sector. While its competitors may look to cutbacks given the recent downturn in the economy, Infosys is optimistic about prospects for growth and profitability.
