The Bellagio Symposium on New Growth Paradigms

July 7, 2012

On April 18th and 19th of 2012, The North-South Institute was invited to participate in The Growth Dialogue’s Bellagio Symposium on New Growth Paradigms.
The high-level gathering, convened at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Conference facility on Lake Como in northern Italy, was chaired by Nobellaureate Mike Spence, and co-chaired by the Managing Director of the Growth Dialogue.

The symposium brought together leading academics, policy makers, and thinkers (see participant list) to discuss how the challenge of generating economic growth should be tackled in the current economic environment and for the future.

The symposium provided an ideal opportunity for the group to focus thinking on both conceptual and practical aspects of promoting sustainable recovery of the major engines of growth.

The findings of the conference can be found in The Growth Dialogue’s White Paper on the Symposium.
