One key empirical regularity of the economic development process involves the structural transformation from a low-income economy in which low productivity agriculture employs most workers and generates most output, to a higher-income, more industrialized, service-oriented andFile Size: KB.

In the tradition of W. Arthur Lewis and Nicholas Kaldor among others, development is thus envisaged as “structural transformation” of production and employment. Economic development is a process of continuous technological innovation and structural transformation.

Fills a major gap in the literature on structural transformation and covers issues that will be of key interest to researchers, economists, policy makers, and social scientists across the world. Structural change or structural transformation, de ned as the process of real-location of activity across the three broad sectors agriculture, manufacturing and services (Herrendorf et al., ), has always been object of interest in the economic literature.

Economic growth, however, can only be sustainable – and therefore lead to socio-economic development – if these two mechanisms work simultaneously.

The Determinants of Structural Transformation in Asia: A Review of the Literature Structural transformation–the movement of workers from low productivity to high productivity activities–is an essential ingredient of inclusive growth.

The essence of the development process in such an economy is “the transfer of labour resources from the agricultural sector, where they add nothing to production, to the more modern industrial sector, where they create a surplus that may be used for further growth and development.”.

In Lewis model the transformation process or the process of structural change starts by an. The Report suggests that this dilemma can be resolved by employing a development strategy called sustainable structural transformation. This involves the adoption of deliberate, concerted and proactive measures to promote structural transformation and the relative decoupling of natural resource use and environmental impacts from the growth process.

CHAPTER 3. PROMOTING ECONOMIC DIVERSIFICATION AND STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION THROUGH INDUSTRIALISATION INTRODUCTION The manufacturing sector and the process of industrialisation are the key drivers of growth and poverty reduction.

As Figure illustrates, a positive relationship exists between the growth of manufacturing value. Traditional development aid is inadequate to address the bottlenecks for structural transformation, and is hence ineffective.

In this book, Justin Yifu Lin and Yan Wang use the theoretical foundations of New Structural Economics to examine South-South development aid and cooperation from the angle of structural by: 5. This impressive growth performance accompanied two important structural transformations.

traditional to modern. Viewing the structure of African economies in this context, the sources of growth can be decomposed into three components: One due to growth in the modern sector; one due to growth in traditional sectors; and, growth due to the reallocation of resources between the sectors, so-called structural transformation.

Economic Development. Economic development is a process of structural transformation with continuous technological innovation and industrial upgrading, which increase labor productivity, and accompanied improvements in infrastructure and institution, which reduce transaction costs. Structural transformation refers to the reallocation of economic activity across the broad sectors agriculture, manufacturing, and services.
