Q3 2023

Welcome to the Q3 edition of APAC Insider Magazine, your quarterly source for all of the latest news and updates from across the Asia Pacific region. Much of the APAC region has been experiencing recordbreaking heatwaves this quarter, with temperatures rising to around 40°C in countries such as Bangladesh, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. But, even with the scorching weather, our award-winning businesses have been soldiering on and thriving in their respective industries. One of the companies showing resilience and dedication despite the heat is Singapore-based Global Catalyst Advisory, whose leader, Victor Tay, has been recognised as Most Influential Sustainable Business CEO 2023 (South East Asia). We’re pleased to feature Victor on our front cover, and we get to know him and his hard work as the CEO of Global Catalyst, a company which offers a range of innovative solutions in strategic advisory, capabilities development, and investment for economic, social, and enterprise progress. We’re also delighted to be showcasing more of our awardwinning enterprises who are flourishing in industries such as recruitment, risk management, PR and media, gas, recruitment, migration, and dentistry. I hope you enjoy exploring some of the best that the APAC region has to offer and that their stories bring you inspiration. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you back for our Q4 issue in a few months’ time, and wish you a wonderful quarter ahead.
