Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Centre for Asian Business (CAB)

"The Centre for Asian Business is a community of leading academics in the fields of Business, Commerce, Law, Management and Marketing dedicated to producing high-quality research on Asian business, and broadening the Australian understanding of Asian business practices. The Centre seeks, through our research and events, to not only make an important contribution to Australia's understanding of Asian business, but to assist businesses, particularly Australian companies, in their Asian ventures by providing them with high-quality, in-depth research, and facilitating a range of networking and educational events in order to encourage the development of regional collaborative partnerships. Officially established on 1 January 2010, the Centre is located within the International Graduate School of Business (IGSB). Research teams and members are, however, drawn from all schools within UniSA's Division of Business, including the Schools of Commerce, Law, Management, and Marketing, as well as the IGSB. We believe this cross disciplinary approach and diverse research expertise form a major strength of the Centre, and will ensure its relevance and importance to both academia and industry."
