Multinationals and East Asian Integration

About the Publication

In Multinationals and East Asian Integration, leading Asian economists examine the role of foreign private-sector firms -- especially from Japan and the United States -- in the recent and rapid economic growth and integration of East Asia. With examples from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand, this book is the first to explore the successful synergy between government policies and industrial strategies in the diverse economies of East Asia. Multinationals and East Asian Integration provides expert insight on how the "tigers" and "dragons" of East Asia have emerged among the world's leading economic powers.
