About the product

In examining the welfare situation, this publication explores the relationship between economic changes and social development in Asian transition economies. It emphasises human welfare as the ultimate goal of transition, suggesting a need to move away from a one-sided focus on economic growth to a people-oriented approach through the adoption of policies which place the well-being of the population at the centre of transitional and development strategies.
