GOPA Consulting Group has worked in Asia ever since its pioneer years with our first projects in Pakistan. Over time we expanded significantly in China, Mongolia and Afghanistan and gained experience across the continent, from Timor-Leste and Cambodia to Bangladesh or Vietnam.
Asia has experienced a long period of robust economic growth and this strong growth has translated into declining poverty and impressive improvements in human development. Yet poverty remains widespread in many areas and South Asia has the world’s largest concentration of poor people — more than 500 million people live on less than $1.25 a day.
The economic development in Asia is a key motor for our global development trends and transformation processes, particularly in trade and legal rights, paving the way for change.
GOPA Consulting Group is a key performance partner in Asia, and the region represents an important and growing market for the group, generating about 36% of its turnover. Working with regional and national organisations, we have established a reputation for solid implementation of large and complex projects and programmes for a variety of donor organisations. These include the European Union, Asian Development Bank, World Bank, Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) as well as private investors and clients.
