ASIA'S NEW HIGH-TECH COMPETITORS
This report presents indicators of technological development and competitiveness in technology-based product markets for a group of Asian economies. It uses nine economies to comprise the region -- Japan, China, India, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The report is divided into three sections. The first examines Asian technology development, both indigenous and that acquired from other nations. The second looks at the region's competitiveness, mainly through its ability to sell manufactured goods in the United States. In the third section, the report identifies those Asian countries that seem positioned to become more prominent competitors in global high-tech markets over the next 15 years. Throughout this report, special attention is given to firms that produce goods that incorporate advanced technologies (hereafter referred to as "high-tech firms and industries").
- An SRS Special Report. This is a companion volume to the previously released National Science Foundation publication Human Resources for Science and Technology: The Asian Region (NSF 93-303).
