About the Talk: Since 2013, the Growth Lab has worked with the Government of Albania to identify policies that target country-specific binding constraints in order to promote strong, sustainable and inclusive economic growth. Join Ricardo Hausmann and the Growth Lab’s Albania team in a conversation on how long-term engagement has shaped the project’s goals and outcomes. What differentiates the Growth Lab work in Albania? How has it evolved in response to country needs over time? What impact has the work had? What lessons can be learned from the engagement so far? What comes next for the Growth Lab in Albania? This event will discuss what our continuing work in Albania means for both this project and country policy engagements as a whole.
