I'm no expert on the Asian SAP market, so take anything I say with a grain of salt. If you're willing to work outside of Asia, give it a try. Send your resume out there; get the word out to recruiters that you're willing to work internationally. NEVER take my word for it when it comes to which countries are hiring in SAP and which are not. I hope all my readers make a note of that. Country-wide predictions aren't very useful. Everyone's skills are different. If you can't find jobs overseas, you'll have to refine your approach and look at some options for skills enhancement. In your particular situation, you may do better emphasizing hands-on FI/CO work, which would give you more options in the contract market. Project management skills are a lot harder to export from project to project. Not every company agrees on what makes a good project manager, whereas hands-on skills are more objectively assessed. One thing you could do is to look at getting SEM certification/training. SEM would build on your dual strengths in FI/CO and project management by pushing you towards executive-level decision support and financial planning. You can learn more about SEM if you read the SEM consulting interview I am running as the feature article on www.mySAPcareers.com. Good luck.
