East Asia must manage the massive
ShanghaiDaily.com, 20 November 2006

Flow of People Economic growth in East Asia helped lift some 25 million people out of severe poverty in the first three quarters of 2006. But not all poor people benefited from growth rates expected to reach about eight percent among the region's emerging economies, and 9.2 percent among developing countries in 2006. "Despite the fact growth has really been strong, the impact on poverty this year has been more muted than in previous years," says Homi Kharas, chief economist for the World Bank's East Asia region.

Fran Blandy, The Business Report, November 16, 2006

Burgeoning trade with India and China offered Africa a chance to accelerate economic growth, but the continent must not let itself become a feeding ground for the Asian giants, a World Bank study said yesterday.“African countries want to avoid being trapped as a ‘resource basket’ for rapidly industrialising economies such as China and India,” said Harry Broadman, the author of the report and the bank’s economic adviser for Africa.

Although Chinese and Indian investment was concentrated on the huge natural resources of Africa, the Asian giants were rapidly diversifying into garments, food processing, retail, manufacturing and other sectors, the study said.
