This volume discusses several policy challenges facing countries to achieve and sustain inclusive growth. The volume is based on the proceedings of a conference co‐organised by the OECD Economics Department and the World Bank on 24‐25 March 2011, which brought together academics and practitioners from advanced, emerging‐market and developing economies. While discussions on strong growth typically focus on the pace of economic expansion, those on inclusiveness also delve into the patterns of growth and on how its benefits are shared among the various social groups. An important message that came out of the conference is that strong growth is not necessarily inclusive and that policy action is needed to make sure that pro‐growth initiatives also foster inclusiveness.
