Country Report
South East Asia is forecast to be one of the top performing regions in the global economy in 2004. One of the major longer-term threats for the region however is the emergence of China as a low-cost manufacturing centre. So far, China's booming demand for raw materials has supported export growth in these countries. Over the long term there is concern that China could dominate the hi-tech electronic manufacturing sector, as it has already done the textiles sector, undermining the region's future growth strategies.
