About the product

This publication aims to inform policymakers of the development challenges and prospects of the region's 36 least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States. It focuses on productive capacities and economic diversification, which play a critical role in the growth performance, structural transformation and job creation of Asia-Pacific countries with special needs (CSN). The report identifies potential new sectors, products and markets for successful diversification in each CSN. It identifies challenges facing CSN's in pursuing economic diversification. It contains fresh data, new perspectives and approaches, and policy guidance to tackle those challenges and foster success for CSN's in changing their economic structures.
