Dear Qian, I think one country you have missed in the analysis PAKISTAN. Although there are lot of problems that Economy of Pakistan is facing but if law and order situation improved then ther is huge potintail as trde and energy coridor for Pakistan. I also like to point out that issue raised i.e. consideration of comparative advantage, form the bsis of export led growth. As I perceive the East Asian Economies has also taken consideration of their comparative adavntages at the early stages of economic development.
