Evaluating all markets in the Asia-Pacific region is mentally and physically exhaustive, thus we propose ‘regional clustering’ to ease information overload and expedite decision-making. The twenty countries in the region are clustered into four groups using Hierarchical Cluster Analysis, based on ten posited environmental and resource-based variables. Multiple Discriminant Analysis is further used to identify the significant discriminatory variables between clusters.
