China and India had big gains in labor productivity in the past couple of years, compared with other countries in Asia. From 2007 to 2009, Chinese productivity grew by 8.7 percent, while India's was up by 4 percent, according to figures from the International Labor Organization. In the overall Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean), which is made up of 10 countries, productivity slumped by 0.3 percent in the same period. Its members include Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. This is affecting investments as well, as companies pump money into facilities in India and China after seeing such growth.
