Growth Week 2016

Past Event London, UK From 1 Jun 2016 to 3 Jun 2016 Inclusive Growth

Growth Week 2016, the International Growth Centre’s annual conference, took place from 1-3 June at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

This three-day event brought together the IGC’s international network of world-leading researchers, institutional partners and policymakers from partner countries in Africa and South Asia, and featured a series of presentations on top level economic growth research, regional policy sessions and public lectures.

Growth Week has been a key opportunity for researchers and policymakers to connect and discuss fresh and innovative growth ideas, with the aim of sharing knowledge and generating new research projects.
