McKinsey & Company

Southeast Asia is a global powerhouse. The ten member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have a combined GDP of $2.4 trillion and a population of more than 600 million. It is one of the world’s fastest-growing markets—and least well known.

The region has the world’s third largest labour force, and 67 million consumer households—a number that could double by 2025.

Across six offices in Southeast Asia, McKinsey works with leading government institutions and enterprises in all major sectors, to translate the region’s rich opportunities into transformative economic and social impact. We also help leading multinationals build and grow successful businesses in Southeast Asia.

Our client work is underpinned by major knowledge investments, including our Asia Consumer Insights Center, which helps our clients better understand Asian consumer markets, and our ASEAN Global Economics Intelligence desk, which tracks key macroeconomic indicators for the region.

We are committed to building capabilities and growing leaders. Through Young Leaders for Indonesia, the Malaysia Youth Leadership Academy, and initiatives in Singapore and Thailand, we strengthen the skills of young entrepreneurs and professionals. We nurture women’s leadership through mentorship, development programmes, and our research initiative, “Women Matter: An Asian Perspective (PDF–737 KB).

When crisis strikes, we play our part in helping governments and international institutions respond. From flood recovery in Thailand to earthquake response in Aceh to assisting the Philippines in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan, we have contributed our management expertise to improve the impact of recovery measures—and strengthen countries’ future resilience.
