Four Asian countries - Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea - have been held up as the best cases that exemplify the triumph of development policy in achieving desired social outcomes.  In a relatively short period, these countries achieved spectacular growth rates and have been able to sustain economic growth over the long term. But are these results possible to replicate for other countries, undergoing striving for economic  and social transition - but in a different socio-political context? Comparative cases include China, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Myanmar
