This is a panoramic study of the economic zones of Asia and their future in the region's growth and stability. The opening chapter examines the changing global and regional economic environment: globalization vs regionalization; economic success in the region; rapid growth in trade and investment; and the bases of regional co-operation. Specialists on each of the emerging Asian economic zones then examine those zones. Chen and Kwan conclude with a look at the challenges and risk factors that the Asian economies face, and offer an optimistic review of the prospects of the Asian economies in the context of their economic zones.
