Dynamic Asia has overtaken the European Union as Latin America and the Caribbean’s second largest export market, after the United States. However, the region’s exports to Asia remain concentrated in few commodities involving a small number of large firms. This book explores the present and future scope for the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in biregional trade and value chains and the measures that can be taken to make those chains more inclusive and sustainable. SMEs have a low direct presence in the region’s export flows and their participation in the supplier networks of multinational companies is weak.
This volume reviews several supplier development programmes (SDPs) adopted in various countries in Asia and Latin America to increase SME linkages with multinational firms. These programmes, many of which are public-private initiatives, aim to boost SME productivity and enhance their participation in value chains.

BEST PDF Nothing Gained by Overcrowding: How the Garden City Type of Development May Benefit Both Owner and Occupier (Classic Reprint) BOOK ONLINE
Excerpt from Nothing Gained by Overcrowding: How the Garden City Type of Development May Benefit Both Owner and Occupier The Garden City movement, as the name implies, stands for a more harmonious combination of city and country, dwelling house and garden. The rapid growth of towns and cities during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, due to the organisation and concentration of industries, took place without any proper regard being shown for health, convenience or beauty in the arrangement of the town, without any effort to give that combination of building with open space which is necessary to secure adequate light and fresh air for health, adequate un-built-on ground for convenience, or adequate parks and gardens for the beauty of the city. Many attempts and proposals had been made to conteract this evil, but it was only after Mr. Ebenezer Howard had put forward the bold proposal to build a city on new lines, and with his supporters actually commenced to carry out that proposal, and only after Mr. Horsfall had explained what was being done to regulate the growth of towns in Germany that the public realised either the extent of the evil or the possibility of the remedy. Mr. Howard s suggestions included then the proper planning and limiting of a town, so as to keep it always within reasonable touch of open country; this may be called the larger aspect of the question; but they also included the proper arrangement of the individual buildings and the limitation of the amount of building in relation to the area of open space, and this may be called the detailed aspect of the question. What is meant by the founding of a new Garden City is now fairly generally understood, but it is perhaps too often assumed that the Garden City principle is only applicable where it is possible to start a new and entirely independent town right away in the country. Mr. Howard in his book recognised that it is not possible to regulate the aggregations of population in such a way tha
