Inclusive growth: from analysis to policy action

10 years after the financial crisis began there is a recognition that too few are benefiting from the growth that has returned. Around the world, in countries at every stage of development, the left and right, business and civil society agree the status quo is not an option. A fast developing global conversation about new models of inclusive growth is underway. But whilst there is agreement that fresh thinking is needed, the harder debate is to identify and implement the appropriate policy choices for reform.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Inclusive Growth was established to be the cross-party forum for the UK debate. This meeting of the OECD’s Global Parliamentary Network, hosted by the APPG, will bring the global debate to London.

Governments and parliamentarians, mayors and global governance organisations, business and civil society all have a role to play in rewriting the rules of our economies, which are increasingly digital and transnational. This meeting of the OECD network will focus on the policies that can reconnect wealth creation with tackling inequalities and addressing social justice goals, how markets can empower citizens and reduce poverty and the role of parliamentarians in making these changes happen. It will seek to move us from analysis from action and identify the policy choices needed to make growth more inclusive.
