The report argues that economic transformation is an iterative, long-term process that requires constant support, attention and change. It can be triggered by events and contextual factors but can also be a result of deliberate action. Pull and push factors that facilitate economic transformation for each country are country-specific. These factors are likely a combination of internal (e.g. government policy, internal conflict) and external (e.g. regional conflict, changes in trade agreements) issues pushing a country on its economic transformation pathway.
