Rehabilitation and reconstruction (Southern Korea and Southern Viet-Nam)

Many countries of Asia were involved, directly or indirectly, in the Second World War, and their normal economic activities—even where they were not disrupted—underwent basic changes to meet the demands of war. Some—like Burma, China, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines—sustained heavy physical damage and destruction as a result of fighting. India, though not the scene of hostilities, geared its productive machinery to supplying materials and services to the British army in the field. Various other areas were affected in lesser degree.
