The World Bank Global Practices for Trade & Competitiveness (T&C) and Social, Urban, Rural & Resilience (SURR) have jointly produced Competitive Cities for Jobs and Growth: What, Who and How, a report that considers two central questions regarding cities and competitiveness – what makes a city competitive?; and how can cities become more competitive?. The report sheds light on the factors that have helped to attract, retain and expand the private sector in selected cities to make them more competitive. The East Asia and Pacific launch of the report will consist of a sharing of the report’s key findings and a brief discussion on its implications for cities. An operational clinic for interested World Bank Task Team Leaders will also be held.
This event is part of Singapore Urban Week 2016 (March 7-11).
