What are the secrets to productivity development at the national level?
Well, after many years experience in a range of countries, I would have to say “Don’t ask me”.
There is no panacea, no golden bullet.
If I had to offer any advice, it would be to ;
- Get the macroeconomy right – reduce regulation, open up markets
- Invest in infrastructure (especially communications – roads, ports, airports – and telecommunications)
- Invest in skills (basic, vocational and technical).
- Be lucky!
