Inclusive Economic Growth
We support Asian initiatives to foster inclusive economic growth and broaden economic opportunities. We work at all levels—from local to regional—to increase economic opportunities and expand investment and trade; strengthen partnerships among governments, private enterprise, and civil society to promote broad-based, sustainable growth; and improve the responsiveness of public authorities to demand a more supportive business environment, including for women entrepreneurs.
- Expanded economic opportunities through reading and digital literacy skills, education reform, STEM, and workforce development
- Improved business environment for private sector growth and job creation
- Stronger policy measures for continued economic growth in Advanced Middle Income Countries
- Increased societal benefits through entrepreneurship, partnerships, and innovation
