Lessons for Africa from Central Asia's single commodity dependence

The final Brenthurst Discussion Paper by Drs Greg Mills and Terry McNamee, which examines the development cases of Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

The Paper finds inter alia that both countries:

- Share the same challenge as many African states in both managing their dependency on natural resources, and in shaking off a negative image and legacy.

- Have radically improved their growth rates over the past decade.

- Planning for diversification and development is being managed by a team of internationally-recruited experts.
