    Vietnam in Transition

    December, 2008
    Vietnam, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    After decades of war, with a dilapidated infrastructure and millions of people dead, wounded or displaced, Vietnam could have been considered a hopeless case in economic development. Yet, it is now about to enter the ranks of middle-income countries. The obvious question is: How did this happen? This paper goes one step further, asking not which policies were adopted, but rather why they were adopted. This question is all the more intriguing because the process did not involve one group of individuals displacing another within the structure of power.

    February, 2011
    Indonesia, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    East Java is the second largest contributor to Indonesia's economy with a growth rate similar to national level and other major provinces in Java. Nevertheless, for a province that is expected to be a major economic center in the country, there has been very little change in the region's economic structure in the past 10 years. Since 1995, the share of industry and agriculture in the economy is almost unchanged. Furthermore, the growth in both of these two sectors has been low, despite the fact that industry was once the main driver of the East Java economy.

    China, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    such as the need to intensify trade liberalization, and
    domestic competition; to strengthen governance across

    Yemen

    High and sustained rate of economic
    growth in Yemen is a necesary, though not sufficient,
    condition for reduction of the high incidence of poverty and
    for raising the living standards of Yemeni citizens.
    Evidence in this report suggests that the main obstacle to
    rapid and sustained economic growth is the weak governance
    that characterizes Yemen in addition to the weaknesses in
    domestic security, property rights, and rule of law systems.
