India to Continue its “Look East” Policy

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

The respective economic success­es of India and South Korea have emerged from various strategies by concentrating on how to im­prove economic status internal­ly while connecting with foreign countries. More specifically, India, similarly with oth­er countries, has its own distinct economic strategies, one of which is the Look East Policy, or LEP. In the upcoming years, it’s believed that India will continue in aiding its economy with this policy.

Look East Policy a background

The underpinnings of this policy are about changing perspectives when it comes to viewing the world. As influenced by Western colonists, the mindset of India of the past focused more on Western countries in terms of bridging business connections. Through the Look East policy, however, the country’s view on partnerships was divert­ed to concentrating on countries in the east­ern part of the world. Prime Minister P.V. Narasiha Rao was the initial active person behind this policy. He believed that reach­ing the top of the global business industry is attainable by tying up with countries from Southeast Asia, which in this case is the eastern region the policy targets.

Taiwan Opts for LED Streetlamps to Lower Carbon Footprint

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Traditional street lighting in Taiwan is soon to get better lighting technology with the introduction of smart Light Emitting Diode (LED) streetlamps. These lights are known to be more electricity-efficient, have longer life-cycles, costeffectiveness, and better performance ratings in comparison to the typical mercury vapor streetlamps and sodium pressurized lamps. Over and above these factors, LED streetlamps are likely to save the Taiwanese government substantial maintenance and replacement costs as well.

Japan Tests Nuclear Plant Under Watchful IAEA

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Japan, the world leader in nuclear power generation, lacks natural resources required to sustain itself, especially in terms of power generation. Japan was once totally dependent on oil imports for its energy sources. In order to reduce its import bill and to attain stability in terms of power generation, Japan started to employ nuclear power for its electric power needs. The 1974 world oil shock also contributed to this policy change.


Asian Schools Go High-Tech with iPads

Monday, September 5th, 2011

The phenomenal rise of Apple's iPad is changing the face of mobile computing in almost all major aspects of Asian society, including education. Schools in more economically-advanced Asian countries are now going high-tech with the integration of the iPad and other similar tablet devices as a comprehensive learning solution for their students, which will eventually replace traditional paper-based notepads.

Asia Tech Coming Clean with Green Solutions

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the dynamic population of Asia will continue to grow during the next five years at rates double that of the United States and Europe. In parallel, however, is the equally dynamic growth of the Asia-Pacific region’s economy, which is expected to grow four times faster than that of Europe during the same time period. To support this rapid growth, Asian economies will have a tremendous increase in demand for energy – and most of this will come from clean and green energy solutions.

China amazed the world in rapidly becoming the second largest global economy, second only to the United States, surpassing both Germany and Japan.

Even during the global economic meltdown, China experienced tremendous growth which it is maintaining this year and is expected to continue doing so in the years to come. However, to support this growth, China has an urgent need to upgrade its energy infrastructure as well as comply with carbon emission reduction requirements and energy conservation.

Rare Earth Minerals: Their Increasing Importance to China, Japan and the Rest of the World

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Today’s world is increasingly at odds with the use of nonrenewable resources, particularly fossil fuels and their derivatives.

These are proving increasingly unsuitable not only because they are inherently “dirty” but also because, in the eyes of some, they subject those who make use of them to terms and conditions that are largely dictated by the nations that produce them.

To Sustainability and Beyond: Green Buildings in Japan, Singapore, S. Korea and China

Friday, February 4th, 2011

The green trend is inescapable nowadays. Green tech is starting to become as firmly rooted — in recognition of the fact that it is both necessary and saleable — in the building sector as it has become in many other sectors, despite the high costs that must be incurred in order to “green” a building, or, moreover, construct one from scratch.
