  • Examines the theoretical underpinnings of industrial policy, interdisciplinary perspectives, and economic history, together with extended empirical evidence from both advanced economies and Asian, Latin American, and African countries.
  • Offers valuable lessons and policy insights to policymakers, practitioners and researchers on developing productive transformation, technological capabilities, and international competitiveness.
