In each case, if you can provide details of these and context for their significance, that will allow the judges to assess your suitability for an award.

Qualitative assessments, independent data, client testimonials and contextual assessments will help support your application. Anything, as long as it is relevant to your Asian business. Generic global information will not be taken into account.
