A Comparative Study of State-Led Development in Myanmar (1988â€“2010) and Suhartoâ€™s Indonesia: An Approach from the Developmental State Theory
This article explores the institutionalization of state-led development in Myanmar after 1988 in comparison with Suhartoâ€™s Indonesia. The analysis centres on the characteristics and theory of developmental states that emerged from the studies of East Asian countries like Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. In Southeast Asia, Suhartoâ€™s Indonesia was perceived as a successful case and was studied by scholars in line with the characteristics of the developmental state. The Tatmadaw (military) government in Myanmar was believed to follow the model of state-led development in Indonesia under Suharto where the military took the role of establishing economic and political development. However, Myanmar has yet to achieve its goal of building a successful state-led development. Therefore, this paper argues that implementing an efficient and effective institutionalization is essential for a successful state-led development (developmental state) in Myanmar.
