Asia’s New Development: The Rise of the networked techno-national state @ Mergenthaler 266

Asia is at the center of the fast-growing biomedical industry: biopharmaceuticals,
genomics and stem cell therapies, and medical devices. What explains the rapid rise
of such Asian countries as China, India, Japan, and Singapore in the biomedical
space?
Ibata-Arens integrates global and national data with original fieldwork to present a
conceptual framework that considers how national governments have managed key
factors, like innovative capacity, government policy, and firm-level strategies. The
result is a view of Asia’s new Developmentalism – and a “networked” national
strategy never before seen.
Ibata-Arens is the author of Beyond Technonationalism: Biomedical Innovation and
Entrepreneurship in Asia, Stanford University Press, 2019.
