American businesses are increasingly selecting Southeast Asian countries as locations for their factories, making this region more important to our economy. In this activity the students will research several countries to select a location for a new factory – weighing factors such as economic and political freedom, access to prominent trade routes, wages, and education levels of the workforce. This activity is designed to be completed towards the end of the unit on Southeast Asia as a way to tie all of the themes of the region together. In order to complete this activity, students should have prior knowledge of how to read a population pyramid.
