About the product
The overall objective in developing the Productive Capacities Index (PCI) is to support the formulation and implementation of holistic, coherent, and evidence-based policymaking in developing countries. The PCI is designed with the aim to improve the quality of trade and development policies by placing the fostering of productive capacities and structural economic transformation at the centre. It particularly helps to identify economy-wide gaps and limitations that hinder efforts aimed at fostering productive capacities and structural economic transformation. It also serves as a tool to track progress towards targets and goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
