Chandra Mouli Posted almost 2 years ago Do Western and Eastern countries define “developed country” in a same way? If not, how they differ? yes the definition of east and west significantly varies. As some one who had travelled across many of the eastern and western countries I can understand there is a bit of sterotyping being done probably due to lack of knowledge. Further despite many of the advancement information technology and internet penetration it is a still a matter of perception than out of substance and reality. West is certainlyl not cozy and east is certainly not ridden in poverty either.
