In the 1980s the countries of Asia-Pacific first experienced "economic miracles." After a short period of stagnation and retrenchment in the 1990s, economic prosperity is again in full swing from the beginning of the twenty-first century. The major driving force behind this is the rapidly growing economic and technical cooperation among countries--China, Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asian countries--in the region, attributable to liberalization of trade and Free Trade Agreements efforts which are expected to lead to the establishment of a common market like the EU. This book is the most comprehensive compendium of expertise about the current economic exchanges and chances of a common market in the Asia-Pacific realm. The perspectives are substantiated by case studies.
Sung-Jo Park is an economist at the Institute for East Asian Studies at the Free University Berlin (Germany). Jongwon Lee is professor at the Department of International Trade, Suwon University (Republic of Korea) and editorial director of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies.
