Regional growth is projected to average 5.2 percent from 2016 "“ 20, led by growth in Philippines and Vietnam, according to OECD Economic Outlook 2016. The region's economy depends heavily on agriculture but manufacturing and services are becoming more important- notably manufacturing of textiles, electronic high-tech goods such as microprocessors and heavy industrial products such as automobiles.

Evatec's SEA activities will be led by Kevin Chen. Born in Taiwan, Kevin joined Evatec on August 2016 as Managing Director of Evatec South East Asia.

"I am glad to have chance to build up the Evatec SEA team and work together with lots of local talents. Most of them have more than 20 years' experiences in high-tech or the semiconductor industry. With the strong commitment from the Evatec SEA team and support from the team in Switzerland, we feel confident that we will grow our business here as expected".
