Chapter 4: A Bottom of Pyramid perspective on Quality Education in the Tropics

The Tropics is an area of enormous opportunity and potential. The countries situated between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn are largely developing in nature. There is huge interest in the types of business investments made in Southeast Asia, Central Africa and the Amazonian Tropical Belts. These tropical regions continue to face opportunities and challenges in attracting foreign direct investments as well as the need to complement and/or compete with larger economies external to the tropics.

This book provides an empirical assessment of the key socio-cultural, economic, environmental and political factors that influence the business dynamics of organizations operating within the Tropics. It will address but is not limited to topics such as attracting businesses to the tropics, facilitating smooth, stable conditions for business operations and sustainability, national institutions and regulations that shape the way business is done and the increasing deployment of new technologies and entrepreneurial innovations which are defining the global tropics as a distinct business region. It will offer readers a key focus for developing a deeper understanding of the factors and frameworks that influence and shape business activity in the area.

While the primary audience for the book consists of academics and students from the fields of economics (environmental economics, developmental economics), business, international trade, and tourism, area studies, it will also provide a practical resource for government policy analysts wanting to fully appreciate some of the key economic and business issues facing the region.
