More Information
This volume presents detailed analyses of the role and significance of Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the economies of East Asia. Various aspects of SME operations are studied, including:

• the role and significance of networking in the conduct of business
• the contribution of culture to business acumen and entrepreneurialism
• human resource development constraints and issues
• technology transfer processes
• the utilisation and application of information technology by SMEs
• the impact of electronic commerce
• the policy framework needed to stimulate the growth of the SME sector.

A common framework is adopted between the different studies, enabling substantive lessons to be derived and policy measures to be identified.

The Role of SMEs in National Economies in East Asia will be of interest to academics and researchers of industrial organisation, Asian economics and Asian studies as well as policymakers concerned with SME growth in the area.
Critical Acclaim
‘The book deserves to be read by those who take an interest in industrial development and SMEs in the region. It provides good basic reading before executing more in-depth study into a particular country or sector.’
– Henry Sandee, ASEAN Economic Bulletin
