概要 This paper investigates the effectiveness of industrial policy, and the role of state capacity to implement it, by making a comparison of automotive development in Thailand and Czechia, the largest vehicle producers in Southeast Asia and Central Eastern Europe, respectively. Although the development of the industry in both countries primarily relied on foreign investment, the countries have used very different types of industrial policy. Thailand introduced a series of vertical industrial policies, pursuing a proactive industrial development strategy with state intervention. In contrast, Czechia has employed mostly horizontal industrial policies with less state intervention, influenced by the restrictions of the European Union. Although both countries achieved considerable output and export growth, Thailand has a deeper and more locally owned supply chain. Thailand’s imaginative use of de facto local content requirements in connection with its product champion policy is instructive.
