Knowledge in action : trade and competitiveness publications update (English)

This paper highlights key resources authored by World Bank Group staff and partners of the Trade and Competitiveness (T&C) global practice. T&C is committed to helping countries develop more dynamic and integrated economies by expanding market opportunities and enabling private initiative. Our work focuses on strengthening product markets through policies and programs designed to improve the investment climate, boost trade, promote competition, and build sector competitiveness, and foster innovation and entrepreneurship. The publications featured here, a portion of the total collection, illustrate the essential role of knowledge creation and sharing in how we work to deliver for clients in developing countries. T&C offers interdisciplinary, cross-practice analytics within an integrated package of advisory, financial, and convening services. Our projects are supported within T&C by a robust knowledge flow, intensive learning, and a culture of innovation. Knowledge exchanges with partners, within the Bank Group, the private sector, and the international community, are an important source of new ideas and approaches.
