  9. 9. Networks for Prosperity InitiativeUNIDO model for structural transformationVarious ways exist for how ‘state of industrialization’ can be defined andrepresented.Ricardo suggests a static view on a country’s export structure to determine iteconomic complexity.UNIDO goes one step further and looks at dynamic processes of “structuraltransformation” that allow countries to use the insights for their economic andindustrial planning.This should help countries to avoid the “middle-income trap” of being stuck inan economic situation of eternal “middle-income” status without sustainableand wide-spread prosperity development.
  10. 10. Networks for Prosperity InitiativeConclusionsEvidence points to the effect network participation has on economic growth –network participation increases information flows and knowledge transfers,allowing states to better participate in global economic networks.A division emerges between highly networked and less networked societies.Various ways exist for how ‘state of industrialization’ can be defined andrepresented. It is proposed to consider a scientific model, looking at industrialdevelopment challenges that lower middle income and upper middle incomecountries with different demographic and geographic characteristics are likelyto face in their particular stages of development.UNIDO’s industrialization model suggests a “structural transformation”,based on a dynamic economic analysis, to avoid the “middle-income trap.”
