Atradius Collections To Strengthen Its Presence In South East Asia

SINGAPORE, February 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Atradius Collections is strengthening its activities in the South East Asia region by expanding its Singapore office. With immediate effect the office will handle all collections activities for region, serving customers as a local hub for the growing activities and catering to the increased demand in Asia.

The Singapore office now handles all cases from Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Atradius Collections' Hong Kong office will continue to serve the Northern Asia region. 

" South East Asia is developing fast and it makes sense to offer debt collection service to the wider market and serve our customers better by providing both local operation and customer services. It is the appropriate time now for us to strengthen and expand our activities in this potential region," says Raymond van der Loos, Managing Director of Atradius Collections.

Atradius Credit Insurance, also part of the Atradius Group and working in close cooperation with Atradius Collections, is active in the region and a trusted partner in credit management for over 85 years. "Support and growth from Atradius Credit Insurance will help to extend our capabilities and allow us to offer an integrated solution which helps businesses grow in South East Asia while managing their trade risk in balanced manner," says van der Loos.

Overall, Asia is the fastest growing region for international business and international trade. This region is of strategic importance to diversify growth for businesses. Many global companies have set up their regional office in Singapore, serving the South Eastern region. Nevertheless, there are unexpected challenges, especially for Western businesses, when collecting in the region. Knowledge about local taxation and a country's legal systems are critical, therefore trusting in local support is critical for its success. Resources, such as international business organizations or chambers of commerce, help establish foreign-owned businesses with legal and credit management contacts and explain how the foreign system works. A successful option is engaging a dedicated debt collection service with experience in collecting debt, such as Atradius Collections.
