Globalization, if properly interpreted and practiced, can result in a more equitable world order where wealth is more even distributed among the rich and the poor. Badly implemented, it can destroy the poor and by extension stifle the growth of the rich. For globalization to work there must be sharing of knowledge, ideas and information among Asian countries.

This book comprises detailed research papers undertaken by various experts on globalization and its impact on Asia. It researches into how Malaysia is progressing towards becoming a knowledge-based society, how leadership and values are being developed, how national competitiveness can be further enhanced, resulting from globalization and AFTA, as well as the emergence and critical role of China as both a threat and an opportunity.
