Chapter I of this study presents a brief review of the appearance and expansion of the Asian IPN phenomenon, followed by a literature survey that explores key drivers of this phenomenon from theoretical perspectives. Theories point to important conditions that countries must meet in order to be successfully integrated into IPNs. These conditions highlight policy implications for creating trade and investment climates that are favourable to IPN development.
