Structural transformation and poverty reduction in Asia’s Landlocked Developing Countries

The term “structural transformation” refers to a change in the long-term composition and distribution of economic activities. More specifically, it is a process of reallocating factors of production, both capital and labour, from one economic activity to another. While structural transformation can technically involve shifts from high to low value-added economic activities, it typically brings about positive outcomes and can be defined effectively as a process of shifting from low to high value-added economic activities (ESCAP, 2015; UNCTAD, 2016).
