By the year 2020 eight of the 12 largest economies in the world will be within the Asia Pacific region. This article reviews recent developments in that part of the world: first, in three advanced market economies - Australia, New Zealand and Japan; secondly, in the four 'tigers' - the newly industrialising economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan; and thirdly within the next group of Asian industrialisers - Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the People's Republic of China. This third group is in danger of being caught in a 'sandwich trap' of cheap labour competition from below and exclusion from higher value-added markets above. In earlier years, the four ‘tigers’ faced the same trap.
