Abstract and Keywords
Production networks have driven Asia’s recent remarkable economic growth. This chapter examines the factors that have shaped production networks in the region and how the benefits of participation in the networks have been distributed. It concludes with a discussion of the implications of the growth in networks in the region for theories of international political economy and international relations.
