    From flying geese to leading dragons: new opportunities and strategies for structural transformation in developing countries

    Description
    This policy research report highlights the potential for successful economic development of any country if it develops industries that are consistent with its comparative advantage (the flying geese pattern). Countries like China, India and Brazil are currently transforming from flying geese to leading dragons through their movement from low-skilled, labor-intensive manufacturing jobs, leaving these industries open to countries with lower income levels such as Africa. This report covers the mechanics and benefits of structural change, intellectual lessons from failures and successes of structural transformation and a unique window of opportunity for Africa: the graduation of China (and other middle-income countries). This report was published by The World Bank in 2011.
