>Ministry of Commerce & Industry
Most Asian countries have Ministries of Commerce which are the equivalent of the U.S. Department of Commerce.  These Ministries attempt to promote their countries products, attract investment and regulate business.  Generally most Asian countries seek investment and the opening of foreign manufacturing and other projects because it expands employment, increases trade and tax revenues.  You may want to use the Ministry to check the information you are getting from other sources and to contact as a source of
further data.
