CID Workshop

KDI-The Asia Foundation co-hosted a workshop on ‘Contemporary Economic and Social Policy for Inclusive Growth’

Seoul, Korea

June 20-21, 2018

KDI Center for International Development (CID) and The Asia Foundation co-hosted a two-day authors’ workshop on ‘Contemporary Economic and Social Policy for Inclusive Growth’ in Seoul. This joint research project aims to capture Asian experiences in economic governance reform and advance the ongoing discourse with insights from Asia.

 

Five authors from East Timor, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, and Mongolia presented their cases along with draft outlines and received productive feedback from the workshop participants. In preparation for the publication to be released next year, the authors elaborated their theses and sharpened their arguments based on the comments from the participants. The publication will include cases that analyze innovative and forward-looking policies designed to spread the benefits of growth and development to a wider group of a country’s population.
