Asia is a continent that is very diverse in its landscape, climate, and it is very rich with natural resources.
Two examples would be:
1. Southwestern Asia
This region is loaded with oil and natural gas. The extraction is relatively easy because it is either in shallow waters, or on land where there's no vegetation. The oil and natural gas industries are the ones that bring in most of the income, and this is the part of the world that pretty much controls the price of the oil and gas.
2. The tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia
The tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia are suitable places for growing the the Para rubber tree. The rubber is one of the products that has one of the biggest demands on the global market. This region is the biggest producer of rubber, so much, that most of rubber that everyone uses in their daily lives is produced in this part of the world, thus making the rubber industry flourish.
