Examines whether developing countries can follow the same pattern of labour-intensive export-led manufacturing growth as the first tier of Newly-Industrializing Economies (NIEs), such as Hong Kong, Korea or Taiwan. It demonstrates that despite potential for clothing exports, neither this approach, nor that of transnational direct investment as followed by Malaysia, is a viable path for most developing countries. It concludes by considering the policy implications for these countries in terms of trade and foreign direct investment.
