A vibrant private sector is key to boosting inclusive growth and reducing poverty. In addition to creating jobs, the private sector produces good and services, drives innovation, and contributes to tax revenue that governments can then reinvest in people. But how can countries build the regulatory environment for sectors to enable maximum job creation? This is one of the topics being discussed during this year’s Annual Meetings.
The Meetings—taking place in Washington, D.C. from October 14 to October 20—bring together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, parliamentarians, private sector executives, representatives from civil society organizations, and academics to discuss issues of global concern, including job creation, poverty eradication, and economic development.
