Dragoman was engaged by a shipbuilder to undertake a feasibility study for the company’s plans to lease an area of land and set up a manufacturing facility in the Philippines. Dragoman’s regional experts went in-country to undertake a scoping study that encompassed a deep dive on the economic and political climate, a stakeholder assessment of key government and civil society figures and produced a comprehensive strategy for market entry and ongoing risk monitoring for the company’s executives and board. The client proceeded with the investment opportunity and now runs a world-class shipbuilding facility in the Philippines with over 300 employees. Dragoman has since been retained to provide strategic advice in Australia, the United States and across the Middle East.
