Global Growth Projections Through 2027

Countries that have diversified their production into more complex sectors, including Vietnam and China, will experience the fastest growth in the coming years, according to researchers at CID’s Growth Lab.

In a major shift in world poverty, the largest numbers of the poorest people aren’t in the poorest countries anymore; instead they make up the socioeconomic underclasses in nations that have recently achieved middle-income status. That means the most effective way to help those people, according to Center for International Development (CID) researchers at EPOD and the Building State Capability (BSC) program, is engaging with national, state, and local officials.
