Recent years have been dominated by shocks that have profoundly changed societies and economies, from the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic to Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine. While unprecedented policy responses have offered temporary relief, issues persist. Many OECD countries face issues like weak productivity growth, declining business dynamism, labor market structural problems, and skill mismatches. Moreover environmental sustainability often remains overlooked in growth strategies. The Going for Growth 2023 offers specific policy recommendations to foster stronger, more inclusive, and sustainable growth.
In this event, we discussed the key insights and recommendations outlined in the Going for Growth 2023 report. The discussion was centered around strategies to enhance productivity, promote sustainable economic growth, and foster inclusivity, while also addressing critical topics like climate transition and digitalization.
This event was organised in partnership with OECD.
