New Pathways to Inclusive Growth: The Sri Lanka Project in Retrospect

Starting in November 2015, The Growth Lab was engaged in economic policy research with the Government of Sri Lanka. Led by Professor Ricardo Hausmann, the team focused on a single question: what is holding back investment in Sri Lanka – especially in new and non-traditional export-oriented sectors – and what can the government do about it? In this Growth Lab podcast, members of the Sri Lanka team share their learnings from the project and how they partnered with key counterparts in the government and civil society to support potential solutions, and better understand the deeper institutional gaps that prevent proactive policymaking.
