To achieve our Vision and Mission, we have built long-term relationships with sincere, strong and professional partners across Asia, the Middle East and internationally. In the Middle East, we have focused on the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and in particular the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

Equally important, are Empire Asias relationships with the leading companies and individuals throughout the ASEAN countries, with special focus today on Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Brunei, where we are actively involved in coal mining, oil & gas exploration and in the development of a new generation of industrial estates and economic corridor type infrastructure projects. Together with our partners in Asia and the Middle East, we diligently explore business opportunities with an intention and commitment make strategic investments in appropriate companies and business sectors, especially where we can leverage our combined expertise, world-wide access to capital and knowledge of emerging markets, whether building new businesses or adding value to existing businesses.
