The network called, RT ASEAN is not only the first in Singapore, it is the first network of its kind in the region. The establishment of the network was in response to a need for cross border competence to deal with the various complexities of doing business in this part of the world, especially with ASEAN fast rising as a global economic engine. RT ASEAN is able to cater for the cultural and professional assimilation that is vital to doing business in Asia, thus, providing seamless service for its clients. This is encapsulated in RT ASEAN’s tag line: ONE FACE ACROSS ASEAN. RT ASEAN’s core strategy is based on innovation, integration and internationalisation.
