Perspectives on Global Development 2013

Industrial Policies in a Changing World

First launched in 2010, Perspectives on Global Development (PGD) is OECD’s annual publication on emerging development issues. The PGD takes the new geography of economic growth, poverty and power as a point of departure. Each year, the report identifies, analyses and provides evidence and policy solutions to the most pressing global development challenges in the new multipolar world. It provides an overview of global trends and structural transformations in the world economy and informs policy makers in developing countries on the implications in the formulation and implementation of national policies. Each year, the report focuses on a different topic covering diverse socio-economic facets of development from trade, development finance, infrastructure, production development and innovation to gender, employment, migration, fiscal and social policies.

During the past decade, the global economic centre of gravity has shifted eastwards and southwards, creating new opportunities for economic co-operation, trade and investment but also new challenges. This "shifting wealth" is a game changer for economic policy and is at the centre of the first three editions of the Perspectives on Global Development, which document the phenomenon (PGD 2010) and analyse its implications for social cohesion (PGD 2012) and productive growth strategies (PGD 2013).

Hide / Show Abstract

Emerging economies and developing countries are playing an increasingly important role as new engines of global growth. The OECD described this gradual shift of the world’s economic centre of gravity from North to South and from West to East in the its first edition of OECD Perspectives on Global Development, published in 2010 under the title Shifting Wealth. In our second edition of this series, Social Cohesion in a Shifting World, published in 2012, we analysed the implications of Shifting Wealth for social cohesion and proposed an integrated policy framework for a sustainable, more cohesive policy agenda.
