The Four Asian Tigers, Four Little Dragons or Four Asian Dragons, are the economies of Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, which underwent rapid industrialization and maintained exceptionally high growth rates (in excess of 7 percent a year) between the early 1960s (mid-1950s for Hong Kong) and 1990s. Most of their influence came from colonists, as they built on infrastructure and education. The “little dragons” benefited from overseas investments and free market economies by low labor costs and getting around the U.S. import restrictions. They benefited from the United States, which gave them electronics like radios and televisions.
