Inclusive growth in Laos’ manufacturing industry
T-Shirts, prosperity and well-being are interlinked. But the benefits and trade-offs involved are little known, neither in the producing countries nor among consumers across the world. This video-clip takes the viewer to industrial production sites and meetings in Laos with voices from company owners and managers. The r4d projectSkills for Industryexamines the critical factors that help or hinder vocational skills development programmes contributing to inclusive industrial growth and transformation. In Laos, it focuses on the manufacturing sector. Both, small and large companies grow quickly. Large companies achieve swifter change in products, technology and organisation. Knowledge transfer between large and small companies could reduce these differences (see also r4d Policy Brief 2/2019 Boosting Growth and Transformation in Laos’ Industry).
This video-clip was produced as part of the r4d programme Digital Storytellers synthesis project. Its contents were filmed and selected by Maurice Hutton and Santhipap Meunmany from the National University of Laos, in collaboration with the Zurich University of Teacher Education, Switzerland. The digital storytelling process was accompanied and supported by Paitití Lab. Watch on YouTube.
