The energy Industry in Asia-Pacific
Oil production in Asia is dominated by China who are the worlds 5th largest oil producer and produce over 4 times the quantity of the next highest oil-producing country, India. However, oil production takes place across the region including in Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition to the energy section, APAC is also a leading region for the mining industry, with minerals such as coal, iron, tin, copper, gold, silver, zinc and mica all being extracted in the region. As Greater Asia is home to half of the worlds biggest mining companies, the employment opportunities in the region are huge.
