Around the world in 80 sites: international business research; part 7: Asia and the Pacific
by Sheri R. Lanza
Presents a guide to online business information resources for Asia
and the Pacific. Notes that this region contains a vast mix of
developing countries, very under-developed countries, newly
industrializing states, and highly developed countries. Says that
the Asia Society is a nonprofit educational organization focused on
building awareness of more than 30 Asian/Pacific countries and
although it did not prove to be as useful as hoped, it does have
some redeeming features. Reports that AsiaOne is an interesting site
with a variety of business and non-business information. Adds that
it contains a mix of Singapore-specific and general Asian
information. Lists Asian Yellow Pages directories on the Internet,
and offers a sidebar that lists Chambers of Commerce. Concludes that
it has taken many months, but the trip around the international
business world is finally completed.
Includes seven screen displays, one sidebar, and one illustration.
