About the product

The present study examines the nature of the unorthodox ownership and governance that are emerging among firms and the way these structures are supporting the remarkable economic growth in the transition economies of East Asia, particularly by China and Vietnam. Emergence of Unorthodox Ownership and Governance Structures in East Asia: An Alternative Transition Path also explores the conditions which have motivated reform, the impact of property rights structure and reform on enterprise performance and the relationship between adaptability and accountability. The publication is part of the Research for Action series which discusses policy-oriented research on the main strategic issues of development and international cooperation, as well as on the interaction between domestic and global changes.
