Review

"The book is very well written and organized. The arguments and justifications are very well discussed. The book is an excellent contribution to the literature on industrial clustering and production networks in terms of the theories and concepts explored, and its applications to Southeast Asian countries in particular, and the ASEAN region in general. It is recommended to scholars, students, policymakers, and those who are interested in a better understanding of the ASEAN region's industrial production and trade, and the significant linkages between them" (The Developing Economies).

About the publication

In this book, the focus is on how developing economies in Southeast Asia ride on the wave of globalization that brings about benefits and economic growth with expanding trade and investment linkages. The central concept used in this study is production networks and industrial clusters. With examples from Indonesia and Malaysia (electronics industry), Singapore (biomedical science industry), and Thailand (automotive industry), the book explains how production networks and industrial clusters have played crucial roles in their industrial development.
           This book also discusses the progress of regional economic cooperation as well as the development of supply chain management and logistics in Southeast Asia, which facilitate the extension of production networks into a broader area.
