After the success of last year, each of the six STEG Themes will host online workshops in September 2021. These workshops will play a role in helping to share knowledge of the current research frontier and in identifying open research questions.

This workshop focused on how improved data or economic measurement can help shed a light on the process of structural transformation and its link to economic growth. There is a particular interest in understanding the challenges for low-income countries.
