Poverty Reduction, the Private Sector, and Tourism in Mainland Southeast Asia Hardback
This book explores the issue of poverty reduction within mainland Southeast Asia with a specific focus on the impact of the private sector and tourism.
Covering Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Yunnan, the book discusses how success in poverty reduction has come about largely through innovation in the private sector, foreign investment and the move toward more market based economic policies as opposed to foreign aid, or interventions by international development programs, to reduce poverty in the region.
