http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99qXpEwInyM

In this interview I discuss the success of the Vietnamese economic transformation and lessons which can be drawn for Africa. I emphasise the importance of entrepreneurial culture, and the significance of agglomeration and spatial clustering of firms. The importance of exporting, foreign direct investment, infrastructure and the enabling role of government are also addressed.
