Inclusive growth and structural change in Southeast Asia

Inclusive Growth and Structural Change in Southeast Asia

Andy Sumner (King’s College London) and Arief Anshory Yusuf (Padjadjaran University, Indonesia)


There are relatively few developing countries that have closed the gap with advanced nations in terms of economic characteristics and the reduction of widespread poverty. One area of the world that has gone the furthest in closing that gap is Southeast Asia. Understanding how this has been possible, and the caveats and prospects ahead is the focus of this project.
