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.
