  • Economic and social progress requires a diverse ecosystem of firms that play complementary roles. The latest report, “Making It Big: Why Developing Countries Need More Large Firms”, constitutes one of the most up-to-date assessments of how large firms are created in low- and middle-income countries and their role in development. It argues that large firms advance a range of development objectives in ways that other firms do not: large firms are more likely to innovate, export, and offer training and are more likely to adopt international standards of quality, among other contributions.

    At this seminar, Alexandros Ragoussis, Senior Economist, International Finance Corporation (IFC) and one of the co-authors, presented the main points of the report. 

    Date/Time:

    5pm-6pm, Thursday, November 5, 2020 (Japan Standard Time)
