In an age in which it is increasingly necessary for nations to consider their competitiveness and at a time when the world economy is facing recession, this book explores the possible trajectory of ASEAN - arguably one of the most dynamic areas in the world - as a regional economic and political bloc. This important and timely study focuses on the role of foreign direct investment in advancing the performance of ASEAN and the competitiveness of its firms, whereas other studies typically focus solely on the role of trade. The expert contributors - an interdisciplinary assembly of economists, lawyers and political scientists - present a comprehensive view of ASEAN's experiences over the past decade, addressing the industrial competitiveness of ASEAN and analysing the role of MNEs against the background of the challenges of integration. They illustrate that regional integration will only be a success if ASEAN's linkages are broadened with global partners through negotiations of Free Trade Agreements. The book concludes that although much still remains to be done, and many promises are still to be unveiled, ASEAN's `coming of age' is an historic milestone. Competitiveness of the ASEAN Countries will appeal to a broad readership including students, academics and researchers with an interest in Asian studies, international business, international economics and international law.

Technology development plays a key role in national competitiveness by giving a country a competitive edge in the information age. Lots of researchers have focused on specific areas of technology development, such as technology transfer, technology acquisition, and technology management, for most of developed countries. However, they have seldom discussed the influence of technology development on other categories of national competitiveness and vice-versa in the developing and less-developed countries. This book, therefore, examines the interrelationships among technology development, economic performance, and human resources, the technology efficiency with technology development and management capabilities, and the role of technology development in national competitiveness. In addition, our study offers a path to the identification of how countries should supplement their insufficient capabilities, and what are the most important issues that need to be addressed in retuning their technology development policies in order to enhance their national competitiveness.
