The presentations will give insights into the innovation dynamics in East Asia and explore the role of support institutions and firm strategy in a new age of high-tech leadership.

In his book Paper Tigers, Hidden Dragons: Firms and the Political Economy of China’s Technological Development, Prof Fuller explains how China has managed to overcome an inefficient support system to create a number of vibrant high-tech firms. These firms, China‚Äôs hidden dragons, are neither purely domestic nor foreign-owned, but combine ethnic Chinese management and foreign financing.

In his latest paper titled Catching up and Leapfrogging: How East Asia Has Redefined the Integrated Circuit Industry, Prof Rasiah will explain how Korean and Taiwanese firms, along with institutional support, strategised, caught up and leapfrogged to assume leadership in memories and logic chips, while other East Asian firms have lagged behind.
