World Development Report 2005: A Better Investment Climate for Everyone

Technical Report

The WDR 2005 focuses on investment climate, and concludes that accelerating growth and poverty reduction required governments to reduce the policy risks, costs, and barriers to competition facing firms of all. It highlights opportunities for governments to improve their investment climates by expanding the opportunities and incentives for firms of all types to invest productively, create jobs, and expand. The report's strong focus on the empirical reality of business's investment decisions, for both large and small firms, is serving well in terms of opening the eyes of policy makers to the reforms that need to be undertaken to spur investment and growth.
