Lessons referred to the unproductive garment industry in Indonesia, the agricultural sector and tourism industries in Southeast Asia, failed rice subsidies in Thailand, as well as experiences with energy policies in Asia. Drawing on these examples and focussing on developments in Myanmar and Indonesia, the presentation provided specific recommendations for the future of economic reforms in Nepal.
