Provides an Introduction to each Country and its Construction Industry

It contains a regional overview of the construction industry in the Asia-Pacific region as well as broad and macroeconomic data on key national indicators, construction output indicators, and general construction cost data.

In the last few years, the global economic outlook has continued to be shrouded in uncertainty and volatility following the financial crisis in the Euro zone. The world economic landscape and tendering climate have also changed. Updated information is therefore important and even crucial. While the US and Europe are going through a difficult period, investors are focusing more keenly on Asia.

Utilizing information compiled from a variety of individuals, organizations, and publications, Spon’s Asia-Pacific Construction Costs Handbook: Fifth Edition outlines the development, property, and construction in a specific country or region. A resource for clients, consultants, contractors, and the manufacturers of construction materials and equipment, this ideal reference breaks down information using national, economic and construction indicators, industry structure, regulations and standards, tendering and contract procedures, labor and material costs, exchange and inflation rates, and more.
