Globalisation and the Asia-Pacific Revival

Arne Bigsten

Abstract: This paper reviews evidence on the evolution of international economic integration of Asia-Pacific countries, and discusses the extent to which this explains their recent growth success. It starts with a review of some theoretical arguments in the growth and globalisation debate, which is followed by a presentation of facts about Asia-Pacific international economic integration and growth relative to other regions of the world. Then we discuss the causes of the growth acceleration in the Asia-Pacific region and reflect on the relationships between policy reforms, openness, and per capita income growth. Finally, we draw some tentative conclusions about future growth in the region.
