Eurasian Perspectives is a communications agency dedicated to giving emerging and established markets international recognition across a variety of different medias and global events. From in-depth reports distributed with the world's top medias to focused events, our goal is to put the people that matter together and create opportunities for business, investment and trade.
Eurasian Perspectives outlines and brings business opportunities to business leaders and key business decision makers across Europe and Asia. With a head count of over 4.4 billion people spread over 49 countries, 60% of the world's total population live in Asia. It is the fastest growing economic region and the largest continental economy by GDP PPP in the world.
Outward investment from Asia has continued to rise over the last decade and the middle-class is growing at an impressive rate. Projections are for Asia’s middle class to continue growing at a rapid rate over the next two decades: by 2030, Asia as a whole is forecasted to have 3.3 billion people in the Middle Class.
With China and Japan leading the way, the volume of business between Asia and Europe is increasing year on year and outward investment from the Asian region reached record levels in 2014.
A Cyprus-based budget airline said on Monday (Feb 9) it has secured investment from a wealthy Hong Kong group that brings it closer to launching flights and replacing the island's shuttered national carrier.
"This broadens our investor base to include both Cypriot and Chinese capital and is a major boost to our plan to launch operations this year as Cyprus' new flag carrier," said Gregory Diacou, chairman of the carrier Cobalt.
Diacou said it was the first major foreign investment in Cyprus since the island secured a €10-billion (at the time US$13 billion) bailout to save its economy and failing banks in March 2013. The amount was not disclosed and neither was the name of the Hong Kong company, which it said was on the Fortune 500 list of the world's top firms.
The new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, backed by China as a potential rival to the World Bank and other international lenders, opened Saturday in Beijing. The 57 member nations have contributed $100 billion in capital to the AIIB, making it nearly half the size of the World Bank as it begins operations.
"This is a historic moment," said Chinese President Xi Jinping, who first proposed a multilateral Asian bank to support infrastructure development projects more than two years ago.
Xi said the new bank would have an important role in making "the global economic governance system more just, equitable and effective."
China provided 30 percent of the new bank's capital, the largest share. AIIB is the first multilateral bank that does not have the United States and Japan as partners.
