Renewing the Dialogue on Inclusive Growth in MENA: Re-Framing the Debate and Setting the Agenda
PCNS & IMF joint event: Renewing the Dialogue on Inclusive Growth in MENA: Re-Framing the Debate and Setting the Agenda
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) are organizing a joint event titled “Renewing the Dialogue on Inclusive Growth in MENA: Re-Framing the Debate and Setting the Agenda” taking place on Friday 16th of June 2023, starting at 10:30 am (Rabat time GMT+1) at The Policy Center for The New South headquarter, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University campus, Rabat, Morocco.
The call for a more inclusive model of growth in MENA has been a recurrent theme in IMF’s communication over the last decade, with the most recent book on this theme published last year. Still, ten years after the Arab Spring, the region continues to struggle to ensure that the benefits of economic development accrue more equitably to all segments of the populations, with the recent shocks threatening to reverse the progress made over the last decades.
The event will be held in two sessions: a panel discussion under the theme “The Political Economy of Inclusive Growth in MENA: Understanding the Challenges and Opportunities” and a closed-door experts roundtable to delve deeper on “The Role of Multilateral Organizations in Promoting Inclusive Growth in the Region.”
