  • Introduction: Services Supply Chain—The Impact on Trade and Development
           in East Asian Countries
    • Abstract: Services supply chains are becoming important drivers of trade and growth in Asia. In particular, the value chain activities within supply chains are critical to fully exploit the region's potential. Recent literature also recognizes that activities related to services and investment in global value chains (GVCs) are important for maintaining competitiveness of trade and investment (Kimura 2018; Miroudot 2019; Gereffi and Fernandez-Stark 2016; Baldwin 2012). In this regard, the global production value chain provides an integrated framework to understand the value-creation activities along the supply chains linking domestic industries to regional and global production and consumption structures.Several scholars have ...

  • Mapping the Philippines in the Offshoring Services Global Value Chain
    • Abstract: The global offshoring industry in the Philippines is one of those industries that have thrived despite the uncertain economic environment in the more recent years. The Philippines has become one of the top offshoring destinations in the world, primarily due to its large pool of college-educated and English-speaking talent. A decade ago, the industry comprised of a few sectors dominated by call centres. Today, the Philippines is the largest global provider of voice-based business process outsourcing (BPO) services. To maintain competitiveness, it is important to understand how the country can move from low-end to high-end and shift to value-driven and complex services, given the new age of global offshoring ...

  • Global Value Chain in Services: The Case of Tourism in Japan
    • Abstract: Since the burst of the financial bubble in the early 1990s, the Japanese economy has grown at a stagnant pace, and productivity has continued to decline. A number of researchers have investigated what transpired during this "two lost decades" phase. The government has also been trying to answer this question in its quest for an effective policy that will boost the country's gross domestic product (GDP) growth. In 2015, the Japanese government set a goal of raising the nominal GDP to JPY600 trillion by 2020. This would require an annual growth rate of 3.5 per cent as nominal GDP stood at JPY486 trillion in 2014. Figure 1 shows Japan's nominal GDP and the growth rate over the years. Based on 2015 figures, the gap ... Read More

  • India in Global Services Value Chain: The Case of IT-BPM
    • Abstract: The services sector remains the prime driver of India's overall economic growth and one of the most attractive sectors for foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows. This is an interesting development because advancements in transportation and communication have resulted in fragmentation and specialization of production at the global scale. Global value chains (GVCs) provide an opportunity for developing countries to increase their participation in the world economy. Since these countries need to specialize only in certain parts of the manufacturing process, they can integrate into the global economy at lower costs than if required to manufacture the entire product. Moreover, they can move up the value chain as they ... Read More

  • Services in Thailand and Participation in Global Value Chains
    • Abstract: The importance of services linkages and global value chain (GVC) activities to improve the competitiveness of domestic firms has been recorded in several recent studies (see, for example, Gereffi and Fernandez-Stark 2010; Barrientos, Gereffi and Rossi 2010). Services create important linkages in GVCs that can have a direct or indirect impact on the productivity of manufacturing firms, mainly in terms of logistics, management and consulting, saving time and materials, and improving coordination (Nordas 2010). The impact of services is also seen on the demand side where firms can differentiate their manufactured goods by bundling them with services, effectively capturing consumer preferences and creating more ...

  • Global Supply Chain in Singapore's Services Sector: Retail Value Chain and
           Productivity Improvements
    • Abstract: It has widely been recorded that Singapore managed to achieve tremendous economic growth in a short span after its independence. Often highlighted as the East Asian economic miracle, the city-state attained its "developed" status in just thirty-five years, and now enjoys one of the highest levels of per capita GDP in the world. Between 1999 and 2011, Singapore was able to sustain very high levels of growth, averaging between 6 and 9 per cent per annum. However, in recent years, against the backdrop of recent global and domestic challenges, the country is rebalancing towards lower growth.Singapore's economic success can be attributed to five factors. First, it has stable and robust institutions that minimize the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Vietnam's services sector was historically not seen as a priority for overall economic development due to the country's political framework and history of central planning. According to the traditional view, the manufacturing sector is the primary driver of development of the domestic economy. In such a setting, the only services that are considered important by the government are basic social services (health and education) and infrastructure services (like energy, transport, telecommunications, and postal services).Before the economic reforms of 1986, state ownership and government monopoly had prevented the rise of several services industries. For a long time, many services that were crucial for the efficient ... Read More

  • Energy, Governance and Security in Thailand and Myanmar (Burma): A
           Critical Approach to Environmental Politics in the South by Adam Simpson
           (review)
    • Abstract: Since its publication in 2014 and subsequent revision and update in 2017, the interdisciplinary relevance of Adam Simpson's work is demonstrated by the multiple perspectives through which his research findings have been reviewed and commented upon. Though primarily an exercise researching the two-way flow of information and interactions that inform decisions in environment and energy projects, the value of Simpson's work lies in highlighting the complex relationships between voice and accountability issues surrounding investments in extractive industries in Thailand and Myanmar. In doing so, the author also highlights the agency of activists in environmental governance. The phrase "activist environmental ... Read More

  • The State and the Transnational Politics of Migrants: A Study of the Chins
           and the Acehnese in Malaysia by Sheila Murugasu (review)
    • Abstract: This book is a welcome addition to the literature on transnational migrant politics, refugee and migrant life in Malaysia and on two migrant communities—the Chin and the Acehnese. With the exception of a handful of studies, there have been few scholarly works on these two groups in the country.The objectives of the book are to identify the ways in which these transnational migrants interact with the Malaysian state, how they engage in transnational politics and how these state-migrant interactions may be conceptualized. The author succeeds in fulfilling these goals and provides us with a nuanced study of how these two migrant groups have been able to carve out space to mobilize politically in the harsh and ...

  • Governing Cambodia's Forests: The International Politics of Policy Reform
           by Andrew Cock (review)
    • Abstract: Examining forest management issues from a political economy perspective is useful because political forces often interact with economic drivers to influence how forests are managed and used. The focus on Cambodia is vital, too, as no extensive or systematic academic work has been undertaken on this country before. Given this background, Governing Cambodia's Forests takes an important step in exploring pressing environment and forest conservation issues in the country.Forest exploitation rarely occurs in a vacuum; there must be an international market that places demand on forest goods; there are also "actors" or stakeholders that feature strongly in the exploitation, consumption, or preservation of forest ...

  • Macroeconomic Policy for Emerging Markets: Lessons from Thailand by
           Bhanupong Nidhiprabha (review)
    • Abstract: Sound macroeconomic policies can be instrumental in promoting and sustaining a country's long-term growth. In the face of global fluctuations, countercyclical macro policies can be adopted to minimize the deviation from an economy's stable growth path. However, when such policies are based on false presumptions and/or hidden agendas, they can lead to catastrophic results.The author, Professor Bhanupong Nidhiprabha, has more than forty years of experience in the field of macroeconomics, particularly international trade, which strengthens the theoretical and practical insights this book offers. Divided into thirteen chapters, his publication deals with a large number of interconnected aspects of the Thai economy, and ... Read More
