I have to research on below scenario.

Asia regional countries are in separate forests/single domains
Europe has forest and child domains. Europe is separate systems only
connected via WAN only.
Our proposal was make one forest under Europe as ‘APAC’, and then we
will migrate regional counties under to APAC forest to appropriate
Trees.
Europe proposed that instead of creating APAC migrate all the Asia
regional forest to one of Europe Domain.
As example, migrate all Asia user accounts to Germany domain under
Europe forest. for me putting every domain to one domain sounds messy
for me should operate by forest wise under main forest.

Can you please tell me what are the pros and cons of 2 proposals and
what most suitable or standard way is?

I will mention that you need to be careful due to certain rules for
individual counties. Many years ago when I had dealings internationaly
there were rules you had to follow when you crossed borders such as what you
refer to.

The biggest difference between the domain and forest is, the security
boundary is the forest not the domain.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755979(WS.10).aspx

Within 2003 and before if you wanted to have seperate password policies you
were forced into having seperate domains, now with 2008 and beyond this is
no longer the case with FGPP's.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770842(WS.10).aspx

If you have a single domain (As long as you can get by all the laws) it is
by far the easiest maintenance and the one I would recommend. You have to
be really good at not handing out the admin authority, since you lose all
control, so will you be able to have a single (Central Location) management
style? You want to learn to delegate authority.

Multiple domains with your Enterprise location being the root domain with
the Enterprise Admin control would be your next best option. Trusts (2003
and beyond) are transitive but you still have to deal with trust issues.
Forest trusts just add another level of complexity but add needed security
as outlined above.

To be define the standard, it is recommended to have as few forests and
domains as possible while keeping your Enterprise secure.

Dear Paul,

Thank you so much for your detail answer.
Your professional answer fill lots of empty spaces of my knowledge
regarding Forest architecture. I will go though with links you send
to me and I'm sure i can get much more details from those links. I
have a clear vision now thanks to you.

Do you know a website or link to check rules that apply for crossed
borders?

Each country has their own rules. You would have to check with their state
department. I think things have some what relaxed over the past few years,
but I would check.

To add, I know, for example, France and the US have different policies. At
one place I worked at with a global presence, we had to create a separate
domain in our forest for France. The same with England, Italy and China.
They are just a few countries we have a corporate presence. Each domain has
their own domain administrators, but we have control of the forest root
domain. A global policy existed but was customized and/or re-worded based on
individual countries. The legal department researched this heavily in order
to put together compliance, regulatory and other guidelines for each
country. We made the policies based on their research. The US location has
the forest root, which we controlled, in addition there is a domain for US
users. We do not use the forest root for user or group accounts. It's an
empty root.

For Rush, I would suggest for the legal departments in each of your
company's countries to pull their resources together to establish rules
based on each country's government laws, to come up with a working solution.
But all in all, I agree with Paul's assessment to basically create a single
forest, emtpy root design, with domains for each country including a
separate domain for the corp office country.
