Abstract

This paper approaches inclusive development in South and South-West Asia through the
framework of structural transformation and productive capacities. It discusses the opportunities
for these countries to build their productive capacities through product diversification and
presents a list of potential new products and export markets that could be targeted by
government and private sector for achieving higher long-term gains. The paper also discusses
country-specific strategies that combine laissez-faire and strategic diversification approaches to
facilitate the emergence of new economic activities that are more likely to increase the
productive capacities in the country.
