The past several centuries have been characterized by the rise and universal application of the capitalist system. While the movement may have began in 18th century Europe, it has since journeyed far from its home to regions far removed from its origins. Today, the proud spirit of free enterprise and entrepreneurship stands ready to conquer and multiply in even the most formerly remote and unlikely regions, such as Far East Asia.
The Far East Tiger Is Waking Up
The proverbial tiger of the Far East of Asia is slowly but surely waking up, lazily stretching its limbs, and limbering up to do battle against the other regional lords of the economic jungle. In short, business in areas of the world such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Burma is becoming a major concern for the formerly dominant economic players from Europe, Australia, and North America.
Reassembling The Geopolitical Puzzle In The Wake Of Communism
Companies, such as the Asia Pacific Resources International Limited, are helping to redefine the power that players of purely local origin can wield in the region. As a result, cities like Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok, and others are becoming centers of political, economic, and cultural power in the Far East of Asia. Many observers feel that this is due in large part to the strong resurgence of free enterprise and entrepreneurial “know how” that has come in the wake of the world wide collapse of the Communist system.
Setting The Tone For Commercial Victory In The Far East
CEO’s in the region, such as Sukanto Tanoto, the founder of P.T. RGE Indonesia, are noted for their versatility and prowess. As such, the Far East has become a hot spot for industrial and economic activity. While the full potential of the region remains untapped at the present time, it stands to reason that it will be harnessed and channeled in the very near future. When this occurs, it will be an epoch of unprecedented profit for those who have wisely invested ahead of time.
An Era Of Coming Prosperity That Need Not Be Feared
Although the era of coming prosperity in the Far East may be an object of concern to some onlookers, particularly those in the Western sphere of economic activity, it need not be an event to be feared. The rise of economic power in the Far East is an event that should be welcomed by the world market. After all, it means that a huge corner of the world is finally coming into its industrial, economic, and cultural independence. A great part of the heritage of humanity and its progress toward freedom is, at last, being realized.
