Beyond the Equity-Efficiency Trade-Off: Practical Ideas for Inclusive Growth and Competitiveness in Europe
Press release: World Economic Forum, European Investment Bank Urge EU Finance Ministers To Make Inclusive Growth Top Priority
The economic situation in Europe calls for an urgent mobilization of resources by committed coalitions of the public and private sectors, academia and civil society to restore Europe’s growth performance on a substantially more equitable basis.
This White Paper is a direct product of a partnership between the World Economic Forum and the European Investment Bank, with contributions from Bruegel, under the Europe Inclusive Growth and Competitiveness Lab set up in February 2016. The Lab aims to support the design and implementation of private-public partnerships in EU member states to increase competiveness and inclusive growth in Europe.
The paper identifies a series concrete examples in Europe of real initiatives focused on innovation and entrepreneurship that can serve as starting points for implementation, acceleration and scaling up.
