Trends and Analysis

image of How Regions Grow

Regional differences within OECD countries are often greater than those between countries and much inequality remains. This report explores what generates growth at the regional level. Based on in-depth econometric modelling and analyses, this report reframes the debate on regional policy and development, emphasising that opportunities for growth exist in all regions.

Globalisation in the OECD has come to regions more strongly than to nations. Technological change and the gradual reduction of the working age population are two main challenges influencing the economic performance of many regions. While some regions are able to adapt to these challenges and reap the benefits of globalisation, others remain stagnant and struggle to compete in the global arena.
