In recent years the issues of trade occupy a central place in the world forum especially those related to the developing countries. The central question is whether existing policies pursued by the developing countries in light of the globalised trade regimes benefit them? This book is about competitiveness of Malaysia's trade in manufactures, examining the fundamental issue of comparative advantage extending traditional the two-factor approach.
This book is intended to be an empirical research by using input- output technique as a major analytical framework. A model used in this book is among the most suitable in the literature and has been widely used by both developed and developing countries. The main concern of the empirical research is to provide an insight into the challenging issues of human capital, labour skills, and trade in manufactures. This book presents an analysis of significant structural changes needed in the economy to response positively and effectively to the millennium challenges.
It is our hope that a book such as this covering an issue of competitiveness of the Malaysian economy will lead to a better understanding of the economy.
