This book, co-authored by Joonkoo Lee and Hyun-Chin Lim, investigates mobile transformation in Asia and the way it shapes a rising form of ‘transnational Asia’ and its organizational forms. How has Asia become so central in the global mobile telecom industry? How has mobile telecom changed national economies and the way they are connected with each other and to a broader global economy? Whether and how do the ways they are integrated to mobile phone global value chains (GVCs) and international trade networks converge and diverge? More broadly, what do all these speak to the present and the future of Asian capitalism(s)? The rise of Asia is significantly attributed to internal and external connections that the region has developed through global and regional production networks. A dense web of intra- and inter-firm networks plays a key role in deepening regional integration but also in advancing the region’s position in the mobile phone GVC. Such networks are not limited to Asian firms such as Samsung and Foxconn; extra-regional firms like Apple play a key role in weaving and bridging intra-Asian connections to the global economy. This study provides a valuable assessment of how Asia as a whole has emerged as a key player in the global mobile telecom industry, how Asian countries are integrated to global value chains similarly and differently, and how the development paths and firms’ business strategies have affected the growth and upgrading trajectories of Asian economies and firms in the global mobile telecom industry.
