Sustainable growth in transition countries

Aid and Development
 Registration Closed
Date: Tuesday, 28 November 2017 12:30

Venue: Bruegel  |  City: Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Belgium

At this event we will discuss the EBRD’s transition report 2017-18. The theme of the Transition Report this year is “Sustainable Growth”. The Report will further develop the theme of the 2016-17 Transition Report, Transition for all: Equal opportunities in an unequal world. This is based on the understanding that growth and economic inclusion are two sides of the same coin: sustainable growth cannot be achieved without inclusion, but without healthy growth inclusion becomes a zero-sum game and thus is also not sustainable.

In recent years, rates of economic growth (and of convergence to the West) in the EBRD’s region have fallen sharply. The report will address the topic of growth against this background. It seeks to evaluate the current position of various countries in the region in terms of economic convergence and articulate a new growth agenda, with particular reference to distinct challenges faced by lower-middle-income and upper-middle-income countries in the region and beyond. In doing so, the report zooms in on the potential new sources of growth in the 21st century: greater dynamism reflected in innovation, entry, growth and exit of firms; infrastructure investment taking advantage of record-low cost of financing as well as lower unit cost of investment; and green growth – seeing climate change commitments as an engine of growth rather than a constraint on economic development.

This event will be livestreamed on this page starting at 13.00. There is no need to register for the livestream.
