Abstract
With huge populations and limited natural resources, Asian countries a re forced to depend on the development of human resources in order to progress. This is especially true for East Asia. The impact of economi c growth on human development varies widely in the three sub-regions o f Asia; East Asia, Southeast Asia and South Asia. Where economic growt h has been rapid, as in East Asia, the impact on human resources devel opment has been favorable but where it has been slower, as in Southeas t Asia, the impact has been less favorable, and where it has been slow est, as in South Asia, the results have been poor. In turn, slower pop ulation growth reduced the number of people requiring food, education and health services and lessened the need to provide jobs. This paper examines the postwar experiences of Asian countries to illustrate the above processes.
