Critical Acclaim
‘The fast-growing countries of East Asia have achieved some of the most spectacular economic achievements of all time. Factory Asia followed a different path from Europe and North America. This book explains how this all came about, by tracking the role of trade, investment, supply chains, connectivity, financial integration and trade agreements, clarifying how all this came together to help change people’s lives. At last we have a comprehensive account, written by leading scholars and policy-makers from the region.’
– Alan Bollard, Victoria University of Wellington and past Director, APEC Secretariat, Australia
