  • Supporting various ministries and agencies in the Thai government in developing and launching the Eastern Economic Corridor, which includes three provinces in the eastern region of Thailand. The project involved: identifying ten new industrial and service sectors for the country, recommending the physical (for example, high-speed rail, new international airports, and enhanced deep seaports) and regulatory (for example, investment incentives, education, and capability building) infrastructure required to support the new corridor, and developing a strategy to fund the $40 billion dollar project for the next 10 years.
  • Helping a leading national oil and gas company in Asia develop a strategy to tap into technological and geographical trends; the scope included conducting thematic and technological trend scans, creating a strategic gameboard to prioritize strategic plays, evaluating potential technology partners, and facilitating partnership discussions for the selected priority areas.
  • Leading a study on the demand for affordable housing in Yangon with a particular focus on the needs of low-income and middle-income segments. In addition to market-need studies, the project scope included benchmarking and designing the required value proposition, drawing on international best practice to define enablers, such as construction cost reduction and funding strategies.
