It is titled ‘Asia's Journey to Prosperity: policy, market and technology over 50 years' and Papua New Guinea is regularly mentioned throughout its 15 chapters.
The Asian Development Bank says the book presents an overview of Asia's growth and transformation in the last 50 years and discusses key policy lessons that can be drawn from the region's experiences.
"It provides a summary of underlying factors that can explain Asia's development performance, as well as the large variations across the region and time periods.
"In particular, the book focuses on the roles of technology, markets and policies in several areas including human capital development, trade and investment, infrastructure, macroeconomic stability, poverty reduction, gender equality, environmental sustainability, development finance, and regional cooperation and integration," the ADB said.
