Industrial Restructuring in Asia: Implications of the Global Economic Crisis is an attempt to examine the impact of the global economic crisis of 2008 on the industrial structure in Asia. Although the crisis did not originate in Asia, Asian economies and financial markets felt its impact, which is likely to deepen significantly in the coming years. The book brings to light not only the cyclical impacts of the crisis, but also those that could influence the long-term growth rate and structure of economies.
