This paper was prepared in an attempt to build consensus on the factors behind East Asia’s economic success and to formulate best practice lessons for Commonwealth developing countries. The principle development issues analysed include: trade and industrial policy, growth, macroeconomic strategies, human development and poverty reduction.

Over the last two decades, the four East Asian tigers grew more rapidly than other developing countries and achieved impressive increases in living standards. The region has emerged as a major magnet for world trade and foreign investment.
