Links International Releases The Ultimate 2024 Salary Guide - 4 Sources of Salary Data, 1 Salary Guide!

HONG KONG, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Links International's 2024 Asia Salary Guide brings you detailed insights and trends covering the 2024 job market landscape across Hong Kong, Singapore and Mainland China. Explore evolving job market dynamics in the region to better prepare for the year and to ensure informed decision-making and strategic planning. This year's Salary Guide is no ordinary salary guide. We've revamped our Salary Guide by including 4 sources of salary data to help our clients and candidates access accurate market salaries without having to check multiple salary sources. Key findings from the 2024 Asia Salary Guide include: 1. Winning and Declining Job Roles Hiring is on the horizon in the second half of 2024 and the roles that are particularly high in demand include: Data Scientists AI/Machine Learning Engineers Blockchain Developers Cybersecurity Engineers Full Stack Developers Scientific R&D Roles Sourcing & Procurement Digital Finance HR transformation and Organisation Transformation Job roles that will decline this year include: Traditional Logistics Transactional Accounting Traditional Transactional Corporate Supporting Functions 2. A Job Market Slowdown in 2023 Despite Asia's prime locations remaining vital for investment and job creation, Mainland China, formerly Asia's economic powerhouse, slowed in 2023 due to geopolitical tensions and reduced foreign investment, leading to fewer job opportunities. Neighbouring location, Hong Kong experienced a milder job market decline, with lower unemployment rates despite relaxed visa rules for foreign talent. Tourism recovery bolstered Hong Kong's economy, fostering optimism for sustained growth and job stability. In Southeast Asia, including Singapore, job markets stayed strong in 2023 but didn't reach 2022's peak demand. 3. Talent For High Demand Skillsets Continues To Be Increasingly Difficult to Source in 2024 Employers are finding it extremely difficult to source new talent in certain high demand roles including Data Scientists, AI/Machine Learning, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Procurement, Digital Finance and Insurance. Accordingly, Governments in Asia have been launching a number of measures to win the battle for these high demand fields with Hong Kong being one of the most aggressive by opening multiple new pathways for work permits and brining talent in from Mainland China. 4. Singapore's HR Landscape Remains Busy and Talent Hungry Singapore, Asia's technology hub is now home to 80 of the world's top 100 tech firms and has set initiatives like the Overseas Networks & Expertise Pass (ONE) and the Tech@SG programme which simplify work visa procedures for international tech talent. Additionally, Singapore aims for 15,000 certified HR professionals to join the workforce by 2027 – the Ministry of Manpower's HR Industry Transformation Plan (HR ITP) focuses on digitalising HR processes, developing strategic capabilities, and adopting progressive practices. 5. Sales & Marketing Bounces Back in Asia Hong Kong's retail sales surged in 2023, with a significant 15.9% increase in November – driving a revival in inbound tourism. This boosted demand for roles in travel retail, sales, customer experience, and management. Singapore is focusing on omnichannel strategies, with 48% of shoppers browsing in physical stores before online purchases and 49% vice versa. Omnichannel spending is expected to reach nearly 62% by 2026. While the China sales and marketing job market remains muted, China's sales and marketing industry is transforming to data-driven, intelligent strategies amidst ongoing digitisation in 2024 and marketing and data related professionals with these skillsets are in high demand.

China continuously expands high-level opening-up

BEIJING, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- A report from People's Daily: In the eyes of many foreign companies, investing in China means investing in the future. A survey conducted by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade showed that over 80 percent of surveyed foreign-invested enterprises rated China's business environment in 2023 as "satisfactory" or above. In the annual China Business Climate Survey released by AmCham China in February this year, half of the 343 members surveyed placed China as their first choice or within their top three investment destinations globally. With a continuously optimized business environment, foreign companies in China can better enjoy the opportunities brought about by the country's high-quality development and high-level opening-up. A sound business environment is crucial to high-level opening-up. At present, China is working to build a market-oriented and world-class business environment governed by a sound legal framework, so as to enhance its ability to attract domestic and international factors of production and resources. The rule of law is the best business environment. Whether foreign companies will face discrimination and unfair treatment when participating in regional development and investing in related projects is a common concern of them. Recently, an action plan aimed to further attract and utilize foreign investment was issued, proposing a series of pragmatic measures to make competition fairer, including improving the bidding system. In recent years, China has enacted and implemented the Foreign Investment Law, made its legal system related to foreign affairs more open and transparent, and strengthened intellectual property right protection. China has worked to improve its institutional framework, promoting higher-level opening-up on the basis of the rule of law. This has created a more stable, fair, transparent and predictable investment environment for foreign companies. A country or region's degree of openness to the outside world and its level of connectivity with the external environment to some extent decide its ability to attract foreign investment and are important parts of its business environment. In 2013, the first edition of China's negative list for foreign investment had 190 items. Currently, the national version of this list has only 31 items, while the version for pilot free trade zones has just 27 items. This contrast highlights China's solid steps towards greater openness to the outside world. The shortening negative list for foreign investment, the exploration of mutual recognition of standards with major trading partners, the high-quality implementation of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, as well as the efforts made to promote institutional opening-up, achieve high-level alignment with international economic and trade rules, and advance a broader agenda of opening-up across more areas and with greater depth... All these endeavors will open up vast opportunities for the development of foreign companies, bringing new opportunities to the world with China's new development. The real test of how good a business environment is lies in the services provided. When a foreign entrepreneur first arrived in Shanghai, he needed to register and file taxes but could not find multilingual application channels. In January this year, an English version of the International Services Shanghai website went into trial operation, providing not only consulting services for taxation, accounting, etc., but also integrating various information resources. "I can even recommend this website directly to my grandmother when she travels to Shanghai. I no longer have to worry about translating a large amount of information," said the entrepreneur, highlighting the progress in Shanghai's government services and the optimization of China's business environment. Establishing a round-table conference system for foreign-invested enterprises, implementing five measures to facilitate foreigners coming to China, solving mobile payment issues for foreigners in China...These services address practical problems for foreign companies and personnel, and will help fully unleash their innovation vitality. China has become a synonym of the best investment destination, and that the "next China" is still China. In the future, China will take multiple measures and make unremitting efforts to continuously improve its business environment and steadily promote higher-level opening-up. It is believed that the country will continue to be a hot destination for global investment, and make new and greater contributions to global development.

DEMAND AT ASIAN FACTORIES RISES AT STRONGEST RATE IN OVER 2 YEARS, IMPROVING NEAR-TERM GROWTH OUTLOOK FOR MANUFACTURING WORLDWIDE: GEP GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN VOLATILITY INDEX

North American suppliers struggling to meet orders due to a lack of staff Manufacturing recession in Europe eases in March, but steep downturn in Germany remains a major drag on the continent Despite Red Sea and Panama Canal disruptions, transportation costs and stockpiling fell in March because of decreases in container rates CLARK, N.J., April 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The GEP Global Supply Chain Volatility Index — a leading indicator tracking demand conditions, shortages, transportation costs, inventories and backlogs based on a monthly survey of 27,000 businesses — fell for the first time this year to -0.32 in March, from February's 10-month high of -0.08. While this does signal a pickup in the level of spare capacity at global suppliers, underlying data show this was due to global manufacturers using up inventory surpluses, some of which were accumulated because of Red Sea and Panama Canal disruptions, and cutting back on stockpiling activity, with companies displaying a preference to clear stocks before placing bumper orders with their vendors. GEP Global Supply Chain Volatility Index Continuing the year-to-date trend, demand for raw materials, commodities and components continued to recover in March. Notably, Asia was the primary driver of this improvement, led by India and China, with factories across the region boosting their purchases of inputs by the strongest degree since December 2021. Given Asia's importance to global production, this provides a strong indication of future growth for the wider manufacturing economy. Notably, North American suppliers experienced difficulties in meeting orders, as backlogs of work due to a lack of staff increased. This suggests a strong pipeline of orders for the coming months. In Europe, the slowest decline in input demand for a year provides evidence of the continent's industrial recession easing. However, the continued struggles of manufacturers in Germany remained a considerable drag. Global transportation costs fell to their lowest level since last December as the diminishing impact of the Suez Canal disruption led container rates to decline. Our data shows no discernable impact to the world's supplies from either the Red Sea attacks or from reduced capacity on the Panama Canal, as businesses adjusted to longer delivery schedules. "In March, orders placed with Asia's suppliers ramped up, which is a strong signal of accelerating growth in manufacturing in the coming months," explained Roopa Makhija, president and co-founder, GEP. "In North America, suppliers are reporting difficulties meeting orders due to staff shortages, signaling capacity constraints, even though input demand declined slightly. This does mean that manufacturers have strong pipelines which undermines the Fed's expressed desire to cut interest rates, at least in the near-term." Interpreting the data: Index > 0, supply chain capacity is being stretched. The further above 0, the more stretched supply chains are. Index < 0, supply chain capacity is being underutilized. The further below 0, the more underutilized supply chains are. MARCH 2024 KEY FINDINGS DEMAND: Global demand for raw materials, commodities and components edged closer to its long-term average in March, signaling recovery in the global manufacturing industry. Asia was the primary driver of this positive trend, with purchasing activity across the region rising at the strongest pace in over two years. INVENTORIES: There was a sharp reversal in global businesses' inventories in March, partly reflecting the winding down of surpluses built up because of the Red Sea disruption. Reports of safety stockpiling were at their lowest since November 2019, before the pandemic. MATERIAL SHORTAGES: Reports of item shortages remained among the lowest seen in four years. LABOR SHORTAGES: There continued to be evidence of growing staffing capacity constraints in March, particularly in Europe and North America, as global reports of manufacturing backlogs rising because of labor shortages were their highest since last August. TRANSPORTATION: Global transport costs fell to their lowest in the year to date in March as the impact on supply chains from the Red Sea disruption receded. REGIONAL SUPPLY CHAIN VOLATILITY NORTH AMERICA: Index fell to -0.31, from 0.17, signaling a renewed increase in spare capacity following the uptick in pressure in February. This reflected a reduction in inventories, alleviating some strain on the region's vendors. EUROPE: Index fell to -0.62, from -0.41. Albeit down on the month, the index is much higher than it was at the end of 2023. Still, recession in Germany's manufacturing economy is weighing on the continent. U.K.: Index rose further in March to -0.17, from -0.34, its highest level in a year and signaling a shrinking amount of spare capacity across the U.K.'s supply chains. ASIA: Index little-changed at -0.07, down only narrowly from -0.02. Overall, the index points to Asian suppliers operating at close to full capacity as regional input demand grew at the fastest pace for over two years.

The headline figure is a weighted sum of six sub-indices derived from PMI data, PMI Comments Trackers and PMI Commodity Price & Supply Indicators compiled by S&P Global. A value above 0 indicates that supply chain capacity is being stretched and supply chain volatility is increasing. The further above 0, the greater the extent to which capacity is being stretched. A value below 0 indicates that supply chain capacity is being underutilized, reducing supply chain volatility. The further below 0, the greater the extent to which capacity is being underutilized.
