The Global Language of Business

Asia Pacific

Asia-Pacific is a dynamic and diversified fast-growing region.

Governments and industry are focused on increasing trade flows and cross-border efficiencies, and we see increased regulatory pressure for improved food and consumer safety.

Key GS1 projects underway in Asia-Pacific include:

  • Global Data Standards for improved efficiencies and safety in international supply chains
  • Pharmaceutical anti-counterfeit supply chain security
  • Agri-food trade facilitation food safety controls and
  • Cross-border traceability.

The future will put increased demand on government for traceability in food safety systems, and while e-commerce is today a low part of trade – it is fast growing.
