Office and workplace

“In order to boost growth and counter the slowdown in emerging markets, we need to step up efforts around the world to accelerate economic activity and to ensure that its benefits reach everybody in society.” – World Economic Forum

The Challenge

With increased trade and investment, many of today’s developing economies are growing rapidly. At the same time, this growth is very unevenly distributed among populations and unemployment remains stubbornly high in many low-income countries.

To ensure that future growth is sustainable, a careful interplay will be required between factors such as the adoption of new technologies, education reform, openness to international trade and policies that favour foreign direct investment.

As developing economies embark on this journey, Season Development will help to foster inclusive growth every step of the way.
