This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book considers the political economy systems which set the context for employers' associations in terms of collective action. It concerns the past and present developments, changing structure and strategy, activities of employers' associations, and their interaction with other bodies such as trade unions and the state. The book compares and contrasts the key elements of employer collective action and employers' associations among the Asian economies. It undertakes a comparative analysis of the case study countries by comparing the developed economies of Japan and South Korea, the city economies of Singapore and Hong Kong, the self-styled socialist market economies of China and Vietnam, the emerging economies of India and Indonesia, and the moderately developed economy of Malaysia.
