From the Publisher
The phenomenon of globalisation came to the forefront of public
interest in the 1990s and continues to exert a growing, powerful,
and uneven effect upon the business, governments and societies of
the world. Yet its very conceptualisation as espoused in the
research literature remains unclear; its effects hotly debated.
This book explores globalisation as something much more than an
interconnectedness of economies, people and processes, taking it
into the realm of a total transcendence in the power of
nation-states and the emergence and growth of 'transnational'
actors, and flows of capital, products, people and information
unprecedented in history. This is especially the case within the
Asia-Oceania region where globalisation is rapidly changing ways of
doing business. Nations and their businesses must be
increasingly competitive within, and beyond, the Asia-Oceania
region. Harnessing the potential benefits of globalisation is more
important now than ever before.
This book presents a response to the need for businesses and
organisations to understand their context of operations, learn and
change so that they, and the various populations across the region,
may fully benefit and prosper from the opportunities of
globalisation. In 23 chapters, distinguished contributors examine
key issues facing business in countries including Australia, China,
Hong Kong, India, Japan, Indonesia, New Zealand, Philippines,
Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand across the major discipline areas of
management, economics, finance, accounting and marketing.
