About the book

This publication highlights the central role of industrialization, and examines one of the big policy challenges at the centre of the 2030 development agenda: how to establish strong linkages and complementarities across the range of productive sectors needed to establish a virtuous circle of rising and shared prosperity. The Report will address such issues as the "middle income trap", "premature deindustrialization" and the "natural resource curse" through an examination of trade specialization, investment financing and the effective use of industrial policies.
