GOVERNANCE MAKES INCLUSIVE GROWTH HAPPEN!                                                                           


In many countries inequality is growing as the benefits of economic growth go to the richest members of society. Inclusive Growth is all about changing the rules so that more people can contribute to and benefit from economic growth.

Governance - the way that governments do their jobs - can make the difference as to whether growth benefits everyone, or just a few. Discover why governance is the motor of this new kind of growth.
