Prompted by fast-rising wages, the graduation of China from labour-intensive manufacturing has opened up a golden window of opportunity for the other low-wage Southern countries to kick-start industrialization by attracting Chinese labour-intensive light manufacturing sectors. In this paper, we aim to diagnose challenges faced by Southern countries to seize the opportunity presented by Chinese industrial transfers to kick-start and speed up their industrialization process. We will then draw on China’s development experiences to propose concrete policy recommendations on how to use special economic zones and triangular cooperation to better seize the opportunity from the perspective of new structural economics.
About: The New Structural Economics & International Development Forum
The New Structural Economics & International Development Forum was initiated in March 2016 by the Institute of New Structural Economics (INSE). It is co-organized with the Institute of South-South Cooperation and Development (ISSCAD) at Peking University. The INSE aspires to advance the frontier research on structural change and help developing countries to promote economic structural transformation. The Forum aims to bridge the gap between research and practice by hosting high-profile, open and equal conversations among scholars, professionals, policy makers and entrepreneurs in the field of international development.
