"The effect of these restrictions and their reality in application took away the incentives for existing foreign investors to improve on their public utility services. They had to divest in due time and their actions were mainly designed to make a sellout of their interests. During the 1960s and the early 1970s, the divestments took place – they were in electricity service, in transportation companies [land and shipping], in telephone and communications. Water and sewerage then was a public function and was not held by foreign investments but was a service that the public works department provided."

Rules of Thumb

Successful National Industrialization is extremely rare. The fastest and widest successes come from countries that opened up to foreign direct investments. What's more, whatever rare successful cases of national industrialization are unfortunately confined to countries in cold or temperate climate zones. The only tropical country to have successfully transformed itself from third world to first is Singapore, and its transformation was due to openness to foreign direct investments.
