  22. 22. Conclusion “Tiger Daddy State”  Economic development in exchange for political freedom  Single party corporate state speeded up development  Businesses were forced to compete overseas  Leadership was pragmatic and flexible  Took maximum advantage of international + domestic politics  EOI as result of policy adaptation  Acknowledged role of businessmen and Entrepreneurs  Recognized need for advanced foreign technology
