The underlying process of structural change and productivity trends in the main sectors and leading industries is explained with reference to foreign trade, the role of savings and investment, the emergence of capital and labour markets and technology transfer. Intrinsic to this process of rapid Asian economic growth is the role of government and the evolution of business organisations and capitalist economic institutions.
