Asia-Pacific Emerging Economies

Prof. Rachel Davis


February 20-24, 2017
Christ University, Lavasa

Emerging Economies as the term suggests indicates traditional economies that are in the
process of emerging into new modern forms. Despite the fact that the process of
modernization took over 300 years in the West and was based on home-grown technologies
and systems, the process of replacing the old with the new was nevertheless a contentious
process with a lot of displacement. Not unlike what is happening today in the Asian Emerging
Economies.

Asian Emerging Economies are modernizing in a few decades by the importing technologies,
processes and systems from the West and Japan. The challenges and opportunities, risks and
reward in doing business in emerging markets are explored through the following topics:
Economic Modernization, Trade, Foreign Direct Investment, Political and Social Modernization.
These topics form the basis for country analysis based on the PESTEL model. Students will be
required to do an analysis of an Asia-Pacific economy using this model.

Countries covered are early emerging economies, Singapore, S. Korea and Taiwan and current
emerging economies, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand & Vietnam. Perspective on these
economies will be provided through comparisons with USA, Japan and India.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
To provide students with local, regional and global perspectives on Asia-Pacific economies.
To enhance students analytical capabilities, critical thinking and knowledge of Emerging
Economies.
