Business dynamism is key to economic growth. The process of new firms entering the market, growing, innovating, and, if unsuccessful, exiting, allows for the reallocation of resources to more efficient and productive uses. In Europe and Central Asia (ECA), economic growth has trended down since the global financial crisis. This has been accompanied by a slowdown in productivity and more sluggish creative destruction. What is necessary for a more vibrant business environment? This conference will highlight recent research on business dynamism and discuss its implications for our work in the ECA region.
