Strong, centralized governmental involvement/action played a major role in this growth. Both countries strongly encouraged large-scale multi-national corporations, then use the concurrent technology transfer and capital inputs as a basis from which to develop their own industries. Both countries' also place strong emphasis on societal education, reformation, and training areas. They see these as major, necessary contributing factors to any further development of their electronics industries. Further, these countries are increasingly developing their electronics industries' capabilities in the production of more sophisticaed, value-added products. this book examines the course and future of development and growth in the Singaporean and Malaysian electronics industries.
