3. I a) Taiwen succeeded to induce the Singer Corporation to invest and train local firms to supply the parts it uses. This strengthened the entire sewing machine industry for export and by 1999, Singer has left all fabrication for local firms. Plethora of operations in garment making, such as cutting, sewing, etc. were carried out by proliferating mini- firms in Taiwen to accommodate U.S. market demand for various types of clothing. b) The 4000 workers trained by the German camera firm Rollei made Singapore the hard disk driver center of the world. Singapore attracted foreigners to produce hard disk drives there, by the “pre-electronic’ skill of its workers in precision machining, such as the 4000 trained by the failed Rollei. c) The recalcitrant protection of the import substitution industries have made the Export Processing Zone industries an enclave, in sharp contrast to Malaysia where backward linkages have spread the prosperity of the electronics sector in the export zone of Bayan Lepas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
