Advancing Global Development Through Open Research

Spotlight on the Journal of Comparative Asian Development (JCAD)

By Marissa Massare on Oct 12, 2021
It is estimated that over the next few decades, the opportunities for growth and transformation in Asia will be tremendous. Even as COVID-19 continues to linger, Central Asian economies are forecasted to grow an average of four percent next year, according to Asian Development Bank. Trade and technology will undoubtedly contribute and will give rise to a host of new strategies that will need to be developed to capitalize on and sustain such progress. So how can Asia boost productivity and economic growth, and seek collaborations with other countries across the globe for optimal global development among all parties? Comparative studies and experiential research are just a few of the many ways that professionals, practitioners, and academicians alike are gearing up for such innovation.
