Higher productivity and efficient use of resources is key for increasing the standard of living and reducing poverty without compromising the ecological imperatives. Industrial policy aims at increasing productivity and efficiency by promoting industries and new economic activities.

Private and public sector are complimentary to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth. The public sector helps overcoming growth obstacles and provides incentives to the private sector development that contribute most to the common good. Developing and efficiently implementing a coherent industrial policy strategy, involving all stakeholders, has been at the heart of the impressive development of highly successful emerging economies, and will be vital for latecomer countries to catch-up.

In this highly-interactive course you will be enabled to contribute to an industrial policy strategy formulation that aims at removing private sector development obstacles, and directing the economy on a sustainable and inclusive growth path. You will be exposed to experiences by both successful and less successful countries and you will have the chance to discuss with leading experts the crucial success factors.

Whether you work in industry, the government, a multilateral organization, or an NGO, understanding industrial policy helps you to address the challenges of sustainable and inclusive development and to contribute to industrial policy strategy formulation.
