General Motors Southeast Asia Operations (GM) is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand and covers markets including Brunei, Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Caledonia, Philippines, Pakistan, Singapore, Tahiti, Thailand and Vanuatu. To date, GM has invested a total of USD1.4 million in manufacturing facilities in the region, targeting a potential market of more than 3.09 million vehicles in 2013 (excluding Japan and Pakistan).
The SEA region is made up of 10 different countries which are members of ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations). They include Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Brunei and Singapore. The SEA is not a single, unified market, as each country is unique with different tax, customs and other requirements and different levels of localization but if combined, SEA represents a volume that would place it as the seventh largest automotive market in the world.
