ASEAN the new hot-spot for foreign investment

Southeast Asia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foreign direct investment, especially as other destinations in the region level off, a securities expert said on Monday.

"Foreign direct investment for China is leveling off," said Amar Gill from Lyonnais Security Asia.

Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia are seeing the sharpest rise in FDI in the region, he said, adding that disposable per capita income has also been on the rise.
