About the product
This book brings forward a crucial issue of how to manage the process of strategic integration into the global economy. The performance of Asian and African economies over recent decades clearly shows that engagement with the global economy can play a key role in advancing development. Asia and Africa in the Global Economy systematically deciphers the different experiences in the two regions, and provides comprehensive coverage of policies and institutions, focusing on the key sectors of primary exports. It also covers key topics such as manufacturing, foreign direct investment, financial flows and official development assistance. Contributors to this book include leading scholars from Southeast Asia and Africa.
