Springer signed an agreement for a publishing partnership with Asia Briefing Ltd. for technical and business guides. Springer will take over the backlist of around 15 books from Asia Briefing, and reissue them in updated editions, as well as publish five new books each year. The books are written exclusively by legal, accounting, and auditing professionals at Dezan Shira & Associates. Springer will be responsible for the marketing, sales, and distribution of the books.
Asia Briefing Publications are comprehensive guides to legal, taxm and business issues for conducting trade and business in Asia. They explore the complexities of corporate establishment, risk, compliance, and regional investment issues facing international businesses. Previously, all books in the series have dealt with China, but Springer announced that it plans to expand the series to include other Asian countries such as Vietnam and India. The books are updated on average every six months, with several now in their second or third editions. They will be available from Springer as eBooks and in print-to-order (PTO) format.
