Asia is the largest continent, comprising the major portion of the broad east-west extent of the Northern Hemisphere land masses. Asia has three main financial centres: Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo. The most spectacular industrialization has occurred in Japan and the “Four Little Dragons”—Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The economies of Thailand, Indonesia, and South China are booming thanks to Japanese investment in plants and to cheap indigenous labor.
Asia has the 3rd largest nominal GDP of all continents, after North America and Europe, but the largest when measured in PPP. As of 2007, the largest national economy within Asia, in terms of gross domestic product (PPP), is that of China followed by that of India and that of Japan.
