Guest editor’s introduction
Export-led growth, through making the best use of comparative advantage, has been the hallmark of the Asian newly-industrializing economies (NIEs). Despite the occasional hiccup, the 1980s were a decade of sustained high-level growth.

They are becoming, as Japan earlier became, more mature if potentially less dynamic economies.
