  Newly industrialized countries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The category of Newly industrializing countries (NICs) is a social/economic classification status applied to several countries around the world by political scientists and economists.
NICs are countries that are not quite yet at the status of a full-fledged first world nation, but still more advanced than countries in the third world or in the category of least developed countries.
NICs began to be recognized in the 1970s when the so-called "East Asian Tigers" of Hong Kong (SAR of the People's Republic of China), South Korea, Singapore and the Republic of China (Taiwan) rose to global prominence with rapid industrial growth since the 1960s, most now having evolved beyond this status (see developed countries).

Country formerly classified as less developed, but which is becoming rapidly industrialized.
The first wave of countries to be identified as newly industrializing included Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan.
These countries underwent rapid industrial growth in the 1970s and 1980s, attracting significant financial investment, and are now associated with high-technology industries.

 Packet Radio: Applications for Libraries in Developing Countries (1993) - UDT Series on Data Communication Technologies ...
The countries that fall into this broad category are far-flung and extremely diverse, with different ethnic and historical backgrounds, disparate social and political realities, and varying levels of economic and technological development.
Given the great diversity between developing countries, and the information infrastructures within them, it is extremely difficult, if not unwise, to attempt to apply a single solution such as packet radio to their problems.
Developing country libraries, and developing countries in general, suffer from a host of problems and it is obviously impossible to address even a very small proportion of them.

 Internet Commerce - DRCLAS News Winter 1999   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Some developing countries may also be able to use the Internet to grab a larger share of the global computer software, hardware and services industry, taking advantage to the opportunity that Internet technology itself affords to decentralize operations and share know-how and management across borders.
To begin with, many developing countries are finding that their existing telephone and computer networks are not adequate to support the mass deployment of quality Internet services, and that it is costly to upgrade their computers, higher speed wide-area "backbone" networks, and local access.
Furthermore, many developing and newly industrialized countries governments also derive a large fraction of their revenues from value-added, customs, and sales taxes, and thus are unlikely to accept proposals not to tax Web commerce.

 WHO | Press release
As developing countries modernize, they are more able to control communicable diseases, and the life expectancy of their populations increases.
This is partly because of their adoption of lifestyles similar to those in industrialized countries, and the accompanying risk factors - high blood pressure, smoking, high blood cholesterol levels, unhealthy diet, physical in-activity and obesity.
In the industrialized countries themselves, meanwhile, deaths rates from coronary heart disease have declined dramatically in the last 30 years.

 The export of environmental responsibility - Editorial Archives of Environmental Health - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The majority of industrial investment in developing countries in the past decade was made by foreign companies or foreign investment groups.[1] Much of this investment comes from multinational corporations, many of which bring a corporate experience in occupational safety and health and a commitment to environmental protection along with their industry.
In most countries, industry is sought by cities and states to provide jobs for its citizens, to support population growth, and to provide the tax base that supports community services.
When the industry migrates from the United States to Mexico, it not only takes advantage of lower wages, it also profits from the low tax base found in areas that are not spending on such things as sewage systems, water treatment plants, schools, and public transportation.

 Business :  EDUCATION:Education level can make Lagos most industrialised city in ...
Educational performance in terms of the level and structure of education in a country, relative to the level obtainable in such developed countries like USA, UK and Canada, can serve as criterion for joining the league of Newly Industrialized Countries, (NICs).
Explaining the unconscious emergence of Lagos state as a Newly Industrialized City/state, he submitted that countries within the framework of Newly Industrialized countries are selected on the basis of some indicators relating to their industrialization programmes.
They represent the emergence of a small group of countries as producers and exporters of manufactured goods; goods which were earlier within the monopoly of the advanced industrialized countries.

 Latitudes Volume 1 -- Newly Industrialized Countries   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
In this essay, the author argues that the practice of presenting the Newly Industrialized Countries of Asia as models for economic development is unjustified since the factors which facilitated their development are not present in the current global economy.
This experience of the NICs has been seen by many to prove that the EOI strategy for development is far superior to that of the import-restraining import substitution industrialization (ISI).
These two aspects were present for the NICs during their shift from an ISI to an EOI strategy, and in the consequent EOI period, but are absent in the present global economy.

By area, the largest increases in nonagricultural exports were to Canada, where economic growth was strong, and to the newly industrialized countries in Asia.
The decrease in soybeans was to Western Europe, and the decrease in wheat was to developing countries in Asia.

 Newly industrializing economy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term "Newly Industrializing Economy", coined by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), describes developing countries that have enjoyed rapid economic growth and can be described as "middle-income" countries.
The term was first applied to Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan, but it is often extended to other countries.

 Trading arrangements and industrial development
The problem with this analysis is that it starts from assuming a pattern of comparative advantage of newly industrialized countries.
The experience of these countries suggests the need for an analysis in which the pattern of comparative advantage is not set in stone but is potentially flexible, and in which less developed countries can develop and converge in both income and economic structure to industrial economies.
Economic development can be thought of as the spread of these concentrations from country to country.

 Universität Trier - OPUS - Diversification of Foreign Exchange Reserves in Newly Industrialized Countries
The facts point out, that the Euro's emergence will not change the fact that the USD will continue to be the major currency of transaction balances of the central banks in Taiwan and Thailand.
In order to answer the question about diversification of monetary reserves as idle balance in the two NICs, we carry out an analysis of the portfolio approach, which is based on the basic ideas of the Tobin-Markowitz model.
This analysis shows that Taiwan and/or Thailand respectively cannot reduce risk at a given rate of return or increase the rate of return at a given risk by diversifying their monetary reserves as idle balance from the USD to the Euro.

 Industrial pollution in economic development: Kuznets revisited
To explore the implications of their findings, the authors stimulate recent trends in industrial water pollution for industrial economies in the OECD (Organization for the Economic Cooperation and Development), the newly industrialized countries, Asian developing countries, and ex-COMECON (Poland and former Soviet Union) economies.
They find roughly stable emissions in the OECD and ex-COMECON economies, moderate increases in the newly industrialized countries, and rapidly growing pollution in the Asian developing countries.
Their estimates for the 1980s suggest that Asian developing countries displaced the OECD economies as the greatest generators of industrial water pollution.
