Globalization and development revisited in the light of asian experience
ISLAM, Azizul . Globalization and development revisited in the light of asian experience. Thailand: UNCTAD/UNDP Global Programme, nov. 1999. 25p.
This paper analyzes the benefits and risks of participation in the globalization process in light of the development experience of selected countries of East/South-East Asia (Indonesia, malaysia, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea and Thailand). It is argued that isolationism is not the appropriate response to the perfils of globalization; instead, efforts should be made to prevent the occurrence of any future crises or at least to moderate their adverse impact. In that context, the paper focuses on areas of international cooperation.
