About this book

Asian Megatrends assesses the key drivers impacting Asia over the next two decades. The rise of China is transforming the Asia-Pacific, as China’s economic and military might increasingly reverberates throughout the region. India and Indonesia are also rising Asian powers that are changing the shape of the Asian economic landscape. The rapid growth of emerging Asian consumer markets is becoming an increasingly important growth engine for the world economy and for global multinationals. However, Asia faces tremendous economic and social challenges over the long-term, including the rapid growth of Asian megacities and severe environmental problems due to climate change, water crises and pollution. Geopolitical tensions have also been escalating in the Asia-Pacific due to territorial disputes in the South China Sea and the East China Sea, increasing the risk of a regional arms race and military confrontation.
Asian Megatrends is an essential read for government officials and corporate executives wishing to understand the rapidly changing risk landscape in Asia.

“With such a commanding title, Asian Megatrends has a lot to deliver. Pleasingly, it does. … In this book he writes about the big picture topics that are dominating order and power in the Asian region and with his extensive knowledge casts comparisons and observations that are insightful and refreshing. … Asian Megatrends by Rajiv Biswas is an accessible resource for the international relations and economics student and scholar, the private sector executive and policy-maker alike.” (Dr. Stephanie Koorey, Australian Institute of International Affairs, internationalaffairs.org.au, May, 2016)
