The EBRD and Economic Inclusion

By Anna Carlson

The EBRD has launched its first Economic Inclusion Strategy, stepping up a drive to ensure that more sections of society can benefit from economic progress in the countries where the Bank invests.

Economic inclusion, the opening up of economic opportunities to under-served social groups, is integral to achieving a transition towards sustainable market economies.

An inclusive market economy ensures that anyone regardless of their gender, place of birth, family background, age or other circumstances, over which they have no control, has full and fair access to labour markets, finance and entrepreneurship and, more generally, economic opportunity.
