|Title:||High Tech and Labour in the Asian NICs||Authors:||Pang, E.F.
|Issue Date:||1989||Citation:||Pang, E.F., Lim, L.Y.C. (1989). High Tech and Labour in the Asian NICs. Labour and Society 14 : 43-57. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The experiences of newly industrializing countries (NICs) in Asia (ie, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, & Singapore) with high technology industry are shown to be overwhelmingly positive. This result is due not only to the technical & economic requirements of high technology industry, but, more importantly, to the economic environment in the NICs, particularly their tight labor markets & rising skill & educational levels. It is suggested that, especially with state assistance, developing countries can transcend technological barriers & acquire the indigenous scientific & entrepreneurial capacity to develop new technology, & pose a strong competitive challenge to industrial countries.
